Ms. Gloria is the woman wearing a pink sweater and a pink hat in this picture. The other women are also members of the group "Mujeres Exitosas" which translates to "Successful Women". They are pictured at Gloria's house.

Gloria is a hardworking and active woman. The members of the group chose the name "Successful Women" for their group because they want to be successful at everything that they do. Gloria is the leader of the group. She lives in San Juan Tuxtepec in neighborhood 1 which belongs to the municipality Chapa de Mota in the state of Mexico.

Gloria is 30 years old, is married and is the mother of 3 boys. Her first son is named Sergio de Jesus and is 12 years old. The second is named Luis Angel and is 10 years old and the third is named Jose Julian and is seven years old. Gloria's husband is named Juan de Jesus. He is 36 years old and is an assistant mason. Her husband sometimes has to work in Mexico City for one to two months at a time without seeing his family.

Gloria is a homemaker but also works in embroidery and sells her napkins to people in the community. On market days she has a stall where she shows her embroidery. The images she embroiders range from animals such as deer, geese and others to all types of flowers. The napkins Gloria embroiders are labor intensive. She has to sit for hours to embroider. Generally, it takes Gloria two days to embroider a small napkin and it takes two weeks for large items such as covers and blankets. It is difficult on occasions to find someone to purchase her embroidery. In her area people do not pay much for something that is so labor intensive. Gloria looks for people from other states or countries that admire her work and pay well.

Gloria has dedicated herself to embroidery since she was a child. It was passed down in her family from women like her mother and grandmother. She has years of experience in this field. Embroidery is something that can eventually pay well and be a successful business. She needs help to take her embroidery to places where people from other places can see her embroidery and pay well for it.

Gloria's community has few resources and the majority of people live humbly and raise animals such as sheep and cattle or grow corn. Currently, few women know how to embroider and sell embroidery.

The following women are the members of Gloria's group: Carlota P. F. who is 63 years old; Beatriz Adriana G. M. who is 34 years old; Ana Karen Perez V. who is 19 years old; Araceli Felilpa R. T. who is 26 years old; Claudia Raquel A. B. who is 34 years old; Sara F. Asunsion who is 45 years old; Gloria A. B. who is 30 years old; Liliana S. H. who is 22 yearls old and Lilia R. Desidero who is 30 years old.

This is Gloria's group of successful women and it is a group of women that is united and that help each other. They get along well and have known each other for many years.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
