This group is called "Barrio la Cañada", and is located in the San Antonio la Cienega town. This town is very beautiful because it is located on top of a hill and it has a lovely view of the countrysiD.. The people of this community are farmers and ranchers. Most of them have their own parcel of land for growing crops and raising their animals to sell, and this is their main job. This group is maD. up of seven women from the community. Some of them have grocery stores and others will invest this loan in the purchase of animals to raise and later sell. The names of the group members are the following:

1.-Irma S. M., age 38, whose business is raising chickens and turkeys
2.-Esthela M. C., age 19, who is starting her business where she will be selling fattened chickens
3.-Zenaida C. C.. Mrs Zenaida is 60 and raises cattle and lambs.
4.-Irene R. D. J., age 35. She works in a cockfighting business, raising fighting roosters. She has requested her loan in order to open a grocery store.
5.-Maria Elsa M. C. is 39 and has a grocery store.
6.-Yudith D. R. is 19 and sells animals; lambs and chickens

It is worth mentioning that all of the women also know how to embroider. Some of them also sell their embroidery or take orders. They have the tradition of making napkins and tablecloths, and certain garments. The women of this community are Mazahuas and also speak this dialect. In the community's schools they have introduced Mazahua material so that they do not lose this dialect, and there is a specialized teacher who gives children lessons with the goal of keeping the language alive.

Mrs Irma is in charge of the group. This woman is a leader in her community, meaning that everyone knows and follows her. Her people support her in the decisions that she makes. She is 21, married, and lives with her husband who works in Mexico. Mr and Mrs Irma sow their lands. They have 8 children in total, 3 of whom are married, 2 of whom live with them and 3 of whom depend on them because they go to school and want to finish with a career. Mrs Irma, in order to help her children in school, sells her chickens and turkeys. She gives her earnings to her children so that they can keep studying--so this loan will benefit her family. Mrs Irma has a lot of experience and says that she does not find it difficult to raise the animals, but that it would be difficult to raise other animals such as cows, because she would have to let them out to eat and stay out all day.

Mrs Irma's dream is for her family to be in good health and for her business to advance, and to be able to sell all of her animals, and for her children to finish studying what they want to study. The home where they live is their own, and they are now planning to use part of the house in order to open a business; she is just waiting to have enough savings to finish the space.

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.
