Forty minutes from VeraC. is a community called Barahunda. This community is noted for the fact that there are several PEMEX oil wells located there. In this community there is a group called 'Barahunda'. The group chose this name because it is the name of their community and also because the word means 'fiesta', 'bustle' or 'noise" which describes this very cheerful and united group.

Elia Moran is one of the group's members. She is 60 years old and has six children who are all married. She currently lives with two of her grandchildren. She tells us that more than 7 years ago she wanted to work and, with the support of her children, she opened a furniture store in her community called "Muebleria Diana" (Diana's Furniture Store) in honor of her youngest granddaughter. Elia also raises pigs. She has a small farmyard behind her home where she keeps her pigs. Elia needs this loan to invest in buying feed for her pigs and some household products (chests of drawers, blenders, mixers and irons) to re-stock her business.

Elia hopes that this loan will help her to make progress in her business and that her sales will increase since she would like to make good profits so that she can paint her business and continue investing in it. Elia tells us "I am going to take this opportunity to thank Fundación Realidad for the loan and the trust that they have placed in me".

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.
