The members of this development unit gave it the name "Barahunda" because it is the name of their community and because the meaning of the word is "party, bustle, noise or confusion" and this group is characterized by being very happy and united. This group is located in the town of Barahunda, an hour away from the city of Tierra Blanca in the state of VeraC.. It is comprised of 13 people and this is their third loan from Fundación Realidad.

The leader of the group is Maricela T. Ramírez, 40 years old, who was in primary school until sixth grade and is a single mother of 3 children, 2 of which are girls and one is a boy. She has a small business of her own called "New Isabel" where she sells men's and women's clothing, shoes, and jewelry (bracelets, rings, and necklaces adorned with decorative materials). She needs her loan in order to purchase more clothing and fill her shop so that she is able to earn more money and grow her business little by little. She hopes to increase the size of her shop in the future and enable her children to continue their studies. Ms. Maricela is grateful to FRAC for bringing this program that allows for having a higher quality of life to the community.

Ms. Josefa C. B. is another member of the Barahunda group, 33 years old, who studied until the third year of high school. She is a single mother of two, one 13-year-old boy and one 12-year-old girl who are both in school. She has a small inventory of soft drinks in her house and also sells Mexican food (empanadas, gorditas, tostadas, tacos, cakes, and grilled chicken). “Doña Chepa”, as her friends call her, will invest the loan in ingredients (tortillas, corn, cheese, mayonnaise, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, chicken, peppers and beans) for the preparation of her snacks. She expects to repay her loan on time and continue investing in order to enable further education for her children.

Additional Information

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.
