This group is called Campanita 1 ["Tinkerbell 1"] because the members like the Tinkerbell character. The group is located in the Hidalgo state, in Mexico. It is made up of nine members, enterprising women with a business and/or an established job that they enjoy, and that helps them with their finances and household costs.

Mrs Maria del Pilar is the group president. She is 46, and studied up to the third grade of secondary school. She has one son. She sells Mexican food such as: soups, quesadillas, tamales and hot drinks. Because of her experience and the length of time that she has spent selling food, the majority of her customers know and identify her as a likable, responsible person who is always considerate. Mrs Maria del Pilar has sold food for nearly 20 years. She has people to help her with this work, and so her customers are satisfied with the speed and variety of food that she offers.

She would like this loan for the purchase of basic material, and for buying tables and chairs for her customers to be more comfortable.

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.
