El Milagro 1 Group
In this Group: Tomasa, Faustina Jovita, Gloria, Maria Dolores, Rosa Elia, Balbina, Guadalupe, Jovita, Eustolia, Silvia
The “EL MILAGRO 1” group is called thus because it was a miracle that the group formed at all because they didn’t have enough people for the group; they’d invite others to join and they’d say yes but then change their minds and say no but it was formed at last. The group has ten women who are merchants. The group is located in the community of Villa de Tututepec de Melchor Ocampo. It means “Hill of the Bird” from tototl, “bird” and tepetl “hill.” Most of the residents of this place are indigenous.

The group representative is Mrs. Balvina A. García, 39. She’s married to Mr. Melquiades Lopez. They have two children who are 15 and 13 years of age. Both go to middle school. Balbina is a cake and bread and pastry maker.

Mrs. Rosa Elia García M., 42, is in an unmarried relationship with Mr. Armando Mata. She has four children who are 23, 21, 18 and 17 years of age and all are studying.

Rosa sells handmade tortillas. She’s been in this line of work for 30 years since she learned from her mother while still a little girl. She’s been selling them for the last 15 years, though. She sells from home and so that people will come by to buy them she advertises over a loudspeaker. She has many customers because she sells her product at a very good price and because they are delicious so people buy them well.

She requested the loan to buy corn and firewood to make tortillas. She will use the profits obtained from the sales for her children’s education because she wants them to continue in school, at least through high school, and have a better future. She also wants to be able to make her payments.

She is infinitely grateful because she got the loan she requested and because humble people like her are trusted.

Tomasa J. S., 39, who sells chickens and eggs.
Faustina Jovita H. X, 79, who buys groceries to sell.

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.
