This united group is called Turquesa (turquoise) because it’s the color that pushes them to work hard. They live in the community of Col. Amplacion Matanaranjo that is part of the municipality of Tres Valles in the state of Veracruz. The group is made up of 5 people who know each other because they are neighbors. This is their first loan with Fundacion Realidad.

The group’s representative is Elena D. H.. She is 34, went up to the sixth grade, is married to Ruben Vazquez Peña and they have two children. The son is 11, is in primary school, and the daughter is 13 and in secondary school. Elena tells us that she has been selling chicken pieces on the side of her house for more than 3 years, and on weekends she makes pizza that she sells house to house in her neighborhood. She also told us that sometimes she makes birthday cakes for her customers, and she needs the loan because she wants to build a chicken coop, buy flour, sugar, salt, hot dogs, pineapples, peaches, different types of chiles, chickens and chicken feed. She plans to put the profits back into the business since it grows larger every day, and she wants her children to be able to continue studying.

Maria del Carmen R. is also a member of the Turquesa group. She is 51, went to school up to the third grade, and tells us that in the past, parents preferred that men studied and women stayed at home to learn housework. She had 5 children, 4 that are married, and only the youngest of her children still lives with her. He is 16. Her neighbors call her Mary and she tells us that for the past 20 years she has sold tamales house to house. Sometimes when her customers have parties, they order more than 50 tamales. She needs the loan to buy corn, chiles, tomatoes, lard, oil, spices, meat, banana leaves, and corn to make tamales and then sell them. She hopes that in the future her business will grow and her earnings will increase since she wants to finish building her house.

The other members are Maria de los Angeles H. who sells perfumes, Maria D. who sells cold cuts (ham, hot dogs, cheese and chorizo-sausage), and chicken pieces, and Sandra P. D. who sells shoes through a catalog. They want to use the loan to invest in their business and hope that their earnings increase.

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.
