Piedra Grande Group
In this Group: Alicia, Jesus, Eladia
Mrs. Alicia Sánchez M. lives in the village of Piedra Grande, in the municipality of Coapilla, Chiapas, Mexico. She is married with four children that are still under her roof. The eldest is Daniela Yazmin (11) followed by Antonio (8), Freddy (4) and the youngest Rafael (2).

This will be her third loan from the Reality Foundation, and she invested the two previous loans in the purchase of chickens for resale and in her husband's carpentry business. She says that these business have been going well and that are providing an income for their household.

She started selling chickens because she wanted to help cover her family's expenses and she wanted her husband to feel supported and thus inspired to keep working hard.

She is using her profits to purchase more chickens and wood for her husband's carpentry, which has also been a great help towards covering their expenses.

Her dream is to be able to save money and support her husband, so that they can succeed together as a family.

She joined the group after reading FRAC advertisements posted in her neighborhood. She sought out other interested people, and they formed a group named Piedra Grande after the community they live in.

The three members of the group are as follows:
Alicia Sánchez M.: She will use the loan money to purchase chickens to sell them butchered and seasoned, as well as the purchase of wood and paintings for a separate carpentry business.

Jesús M. Rodríguez: He will use the money to purchase chickens, which he will butcher and season for resale. He also sells tacos dorados or flautas.

Eladia M. Rodríguez: She will use the money to purchase chickens, which she will butcher and season for resale.

Éste ya es el tercer présatamo que pide a Fundación Realidad y los dos préstamos anteriores los ha invertido en la compra y venta de pollos y en la carpintería que trabaja su esposo, comenta que con esta actividad le ha ido bien ya que les a dado buenos ingresos en su hogar.

Se inspiró en esta actividad de venta de pollos por que también quiría ayudar con los gastos que se generan en su familia y así su esposo se sienta apoyado con más ánimo de salir adelante.

Con la ganancia que va obteniendo, lo invierte en la compra de más pollos y madera para su carpintería que también los ha poyado mucho con el gasto que se mantiene del diario.

Su sueño más grande es que logre ahorrar y apoyar a su esposo con sus ingresos y puedan salir adelante juntos como familia.

En el programa se integro por los avisos que FRAC hizo en su localidad, en donde se vio muy interesada y busco otras personas mas para poder formar un grupo y fue así como formaron el grupo de nombre "Piedra Grande" por llamarse así el lugar en donde ellos viven.

Las personas que integran el grupo son tres y son las siguientes:

Alicia Sánchez M.: invierte el préstamo en la compra de pollos para venderlo aliñado, como tambien en la compra de pinturas y madera para su carpintería.

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.
