* not pictured
This group is called “Tututepec los Manguitos” because there are several mango trees at the place where the group meets and because they all belong to the town of Tututepec “Hill of the Bird,” a very beautiful place with much variety of flora and fauna.

The group has 11 very hard working members who are in a variety of different activities: Erud (metal shop; purchases materials to make doors and windows), Zaray, Reyna and Yesica (Tupperware and cosmetics sales), Lourdes (fish sales), Carlos (taxi services), Minerva and Gloria (fast food sales), Maribel and Balbina (tamale and pozole sales) and Antonio (lemon farmer).

Minerva is a woman who has known how to face life and fight to get ahead. She’s worked hard every day to support her children because for many years now since her divorce from her husband she’s been in the fast food business, an activity that has helped her support her children and provide them with education. She has three children. Two of them work and help her with household expenses and she still has one in school. She works hard to provide a career for him so that he will have better opportunities in the future.

She has a small business located downtown where she sells fast food like: sopes, tostadas, enchiladas and quesadillas. She requested the loan to buy more ingredients to make the dishes like: tomatoes, chilies, onion, cheese, chicken and beef, among others, since these are the main ingredients.

She comments that she’s doing well in the business currently. She has several customers since most of the population knows that her dishes are very tasty. Besides, the place she’s located at has a lot of foot traffic. The challenge she faces is competition because there are several food stands nearby but she isn’t concerned about that because she says: “God provides for everyone” and “the sun rises for all.” She thanks God because she’s never lacked food and He has always given her strength to get ahead.

Minerva comments that her greatest wish is to remodel her house and this is why she’s saving up a little from her profits to start making this dream come true.

All the group members are grateful for the loan provided because, thanks to it, they will be able to invest more in their businesses and obtain higher profits to meet their family expenses.

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.
