This group, called “Los Jimenez,” is located in Ayutla, Guerrero, and decided on this name because it's the name of the street where they live. All the members live on the same street. One member, Rosalia, is 30 years old, a single mother with 3 children, 2 of whom are in school. The oldest is in 6th year of primary and the other is in 4th year. The youngest is just 2 years old. Rosalia has had a grocery store for 5 years.

She chose to open this business because she was looking for a means of supporting and advancing her children, and of solving economic problems, and improving her quality of life, since she couldn't count on help from anyone. Rosalia is requesting a loan to continue investing in her store, buying more merchandise such as soft drinks, water, cooking oil, eggs, salt, sugar, soap, toilet paper, and other articles, to continue her sales.

Rosalia's business is serving her well. From the earnings, she is able to continue helping her children with their studies, and cover personal expenses, and to continue improving her quality of life. She is also saving to buy a washing machine, which she lacks and really needs.

Rosalia says that her goal is to make her business grow as an enterprise. She wants to build a larger store. What she most desires is to convert her small store into a real grocery, and to have it well stocked and, thus, to obtain more and better earnings.

Rosalia says she knows her fellow members very well and she comments that they are very responsible and hard-working people, and she is confident that they have the urge to get ahead and overcome, and for that reason, in no occasion have they fallen behind in their loan payments, since they want to continue counting on the help of more loans.

She thanks Kiva investors for providing this opportunity and having confidence, but above all, for believing in her, since thanks to their help, she can invest in her business and, thus, enjoy a better quality of life together with her family, and a better future.

Ella eligió esta negocio, ya que quería buscar la manera de apoyar a sus hijos y sacarlos adelante, y así mismo tener una mejor solvencia económica, para mejor su calidad de vida, ya que no contaba con el apoyo de nadie, aparte de que dice es una muy buena fuente de ingresos, es por eso que decidió empezar con este negocio, con el préstamo que recibió va a continuar invirtiendo en su tienda, en la compra de mas mercancía como son: refrescos, aguas, aceite, huevos, sal, azúcar, jabón, papel higiénico y demás artículos, para continuar con sus ventas.

Su negocio le esta sirviendo de mucho, ya que de las ganancias obtenidas, esta sacando para continuar apoyando a sus hijos con sus estudios y con sus gastos personales e ir mejorando cada vez mas su calidad de vida, además de que esta ahorrando para comprarse una lavadora, ya que no cuenta con una y le hace mucha falta .

Doña Rosalía dice que su meta es la de hacer que su negocio crezca empresarialmente, ya que quiere construir un local más grande, puesto que lo que ella mas desea es convertir su pequeña tienda en una abarrotería, para de esta forma tenerla muy bien surtida y así obtener más y mejores ganancias.

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.
