The following group is called "Lucero". It is a group of 9 women in the community of El Obraje, San Felipe del Progreso, México. The group is one of the closest ones to the center of town. You can walk there, so it isn't far. The nine women are from the same area and they are neighbors and thus they have known each other very well since they were children. They decided to call the group "Lucero" because one of them looked up at the sky and the name occurred to her. They all liked how the name sounded. Their community is large and in general the people are educated. A lot of teachers lives there, and some professionals. It is one of the most advanced areas of the city. The members are the following:

Ana Lilia Guzman C., 36 years old

Esmeralda D. L. L. G., 29 years old

Nancy G. S., 32 years old

Lucero López S., 31 years old

Aurelia V. C., 43 years old

Josefina F. M., 38 years old

Modesta I. C., 55 years old

Ma Elena M. G., 51 years old

Margarita Hernández R., 49 years old

Elena M. is the representative of the "Lucero" group. She has one 9 year old daughter, in primary school in downtown San Felipe del Progreso, In total she had 5 children. 4 are already married and living with their families. Elena was married civilly and through the Church. She has been married for 35 years. She lives with her husband, who works in the Federal Electricity Commision. They have lived in their own home for 5 years. Previously, they rented. Now Elena, besides taking care of her house, sells clothes. She sells leather jackets and purses and shoes as well via catalogue.
Elena works very hard to have money. She also wants to support her husband because they lack many things in their house. Elena doesn't have a locale; she sells house to house and has customers. Her customers are normally teachers and people who work at city hall. She doesn't walk because she has a pick-up truck and she transports her things.

The loan she asked for was to buy various items she needed, ones she had seen but coudn't buy. She also has shoe orders to buy. Elena's goal is to have a locale full of merchandise in the center of town. If she is able to acheive her goal, she thinks it will go very well for her. With the earnings from her business, she will pay for necessities and perhaps for something she likes. She also plans on her son continuing to go to school.

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.
