El Manguito Group
In this Group: Maxima, Maria Del Rosario , Maria Dora
Mrs. María Dora Gonzales Pérez lives in Benito Juárez, in the Municipal of Copainala and state of Chiapas, Mexico.

She is married to Mr. Sergio Zea González with whom she has two children: Blanca Imelda, 21 years old, Felipe Javier, 19 years old.

This is her first loan and she is using it to invest in the coffee harvest. She has to pay staff so that they can transfer the crop to her house when it is harvested. She says that this activity is very good as it brings in a good income for their family.

What inspires her to do this work is from a very young age her parents taught her to harvest coffee and when she married they gave her a small coffee plantation of her own. She thanks God for this ranch because it has fully supported her for 25 years.

The profit she makes from each sale is invested in this work, to clean her plantation, so that when the harvest comes in it is clean and the staff can work comfortably.

She wants to continue working as long as God gives her life, so that she can provide the best for her children and they finish a career.

María Dora was invited to join this group by Mrs. Máxima, who brings this group together to request loans, so she can also work. Her group is called "el manguito" (mango) because they all meet by a mango tree.

The following people make up this group:

Máxima Pérez Sánchez: using the loan to purchase cattle for breeding, as well as fattening pigs and then selling them.

María del Rosario C. A.: using the loan to buy pigs to fatten and then sell by the kilo, as well as sell chicken.

María Dora González Pérez: using the loan to purchase and sell agricultural products, such as coffee.

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.
