Patria Nueva Group
In this Group: Soledad , Josefa , Rosario, Hector Manuel, Bernardino
This group is called Patria Nueva because its members live in a town called Patria Nueva. Most of the people in this town are indigenous people. The members of this group live in a very beautiful area. Five minutes away from their town is a place called "Hierve el Agua" (Water Boils).

This group has 5 members who work in different businesses. Soledad makes tamales, Josefa sells perfume and cosmetics, Rosario sells meals and chicken, Héctor sells pigs and Bernandino sells groceries.

This group's representative is Héctor A. who lives with his partner, Laura G.. They have two children who are in high school. Héctor works buying and selling pigs. He has been in this business for 10 years. He buys his pigs when they are young and then raises them. When they have grown he sells them. He tells us that his business and sales have done well but he has to wait a certain time before he sees any profits because the animals have to grow before he can sell them.

Héctor is requesting this loan to buy more piglets so that he has more and will make more profits when he sells them. Héctor is a very hard-working man who also farms so that he can make more money to support his family.

The whole group thanks FRAC for supporting them.

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.
