In this Group: Maria, Tomasa , Rosa Del Carmen, Maria Rosenda
Mrs. Maria Rosenda G. P. lives in Tecpatan, Chiapas, Mexico. She is married with three children. Seventeen-year-old Hugo is in the sixth semester of his "bachillerato" (an academic high school program). Franklin, age 14, is also in high school. Karla Yadira is only 12 years old; she is a Grade 6 elementary school student.

Maria repairs cars in a garage. She wants a loan so that she can upgrade her shop, which will allow her to provide better service. Maria has had this business for seven years, and says that things are going well. Working as a mechanic has allowed her to care for her children even though her husband abandoned them.

Maria's father inspired her by teaching her how to repair vehicles. After her husband left her, she started repairing cars once again. Her work has allowed her to keep her household running and provide an education for her children.

More than anything, Maria wants to keep working so that her children can continue their education. If she can do this, even her future grandchildren will be better off.

The three other members of this group are Mrs. Maria J. S., Mrs. Tomasa S. Pomentel and Mrs. Rosa de Carmen G. Pereza. Maria sells snacks like pozole (barley and beans), tacos, empanadas (stuffed pastries) and tostadas. Tomasa sells food at a market, while Rosa makes chorizo sausages and hammocks.

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.
