Morelia Group
In this Group: Bertha, Norma Esperanza, Maria Miguelita
María Miguelita Pérez Raimundo lives in Ribera Morelia, municipality of Coapilla, state of Chiapas, Mexico. She is single and goes to night school.

The loan she has requested will be used to purchase materials for her sewing business, such as zippers, scissors, buttons, thread, etc. She has been in this business for eight years since she finished high school. She does this business and it is going well.

Since she was 15 years old, she practiced sewing and learned it in classes through her high school, called tailoring and dressmaking. She like them, and she thanks God for having learned because now it gets her out of a lot of messes that come up.

She saves the profits she makes on each dress or item to buy more material and keep working as a seamstress because she likes it so much. This is how she is able to pay for her college classes.

She most wants to finish school and succeed in having her own seam shop where she will be able to help her family.

She became a part of this group by way of her mother, Bertha, who started the group and named it Morelia. The reason for this name is because that is the name of the place where the group started.

There are three women who make up the group. They are:

Bertha R. Pérez: She used this loan to purchase merchandise to stock her grocery store, such as sugar, oil, yogurt, etc.

Norma Esperanza Vázquez Gómez: She used this loan to buy materials such as zippers, buttons, thread, etc. for her sewing business.

María Miguelita P. Raimundo: She used the loan to buy materials for her seam shop where she makes dresses, blouses, slacks, etc.

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.
