This group, called “Altamirano”, is from the community of San Pedro in San Felipe del Progreso. The group is comprised of 13 hardworking women. All 13 are married. They have their families and are housewives, but they are also involved in raising animals such as pigs, sheep, chickens, and turkeys. They do this to obtain income and to help when they can with expenses, whether for their children in school or the needs of the household. Also, because they don’t have full time jobs they want to invest part of their time in something that is productive and that supports their husbands so that together they can progress, getting all the necessities of life that they currently need.


The community of San Pedro is one of the most advanced communities in the municipality. It has all the public services, like water and drains, a hospital, schools, and a service station. In short, it is very complete and is also a community that has a lot of professionals and young students. The group decided on the name Altamirano because it is a name which can bring a lot of luck to all its members since it is the name of a part of Chiapas and also of an important writer. The thirteen members are:


1.-Concepción M. Mejía, age 30
2.-Carolina Sánchez Ramírez, age 29
3.-Valentina B. Q., age 404.-Maria Jacinta D. Jesús V., age 56

12.-Teresa B. Q., age 31
13.-Ana Rosa Severa S., age 24


Carolina is a representative of this group. She has 3 children who study in primary school. She lives in a common law relationship with her husband. They have just built their own house, and she can help out by selling her animals. What her husband earns will pay for the house. Though they lack several things having the house is a big step. Her husband drives a taxi, leaving very early and returning late.


Doña Carolina raises lambs. She tells us that her business is doing well because it brings in income, and it is not difficult to care for the animals. The loan will bring great benefit because she is going to purchase lambs since, at the moment, she doesn’t have any. She sold what she had and the family needs income after building the house. Her goals are to be able to finish their house so that it lacks nothing and to improve her family’s quality of lif

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.
