Santa Cruz De Mechoacan Group
In this Group: Rosalba, Angelica Beatriz , Soledad, Estela, Ignacia, Altagracia, Celerina, Ilda, Emilia, Reyna
This group is called “Santa C. D. Mechoacan” because all its members live in the Santa C. neighborhood and their location is Santa Catarina Mechoacan and that’s why they named it so. Each member is in a different line of work that helps her survive economically. These women are indigenous people and very hard working.

Rosalba is one of the group’s members. She’s married to Aurelio who is a farmer. She has five children who are 15, 13, 12, 10 and 8 years of age. Two of them are in school and three of them work.

Rosalba requested the loan to buy ingredients to make fast food snacks because she has a small business at home where she sells enchiladas, crispy tacos, sopes and tostadas. She started the business six months ago due to the need she had because the money her husband earns from crops is insufficient and this is why she started the business.

She will use the loan to buy the ingredients she needs to make her products. She comments that competition does exist but, God willing; she’ll do very well in her sales. Profits she may earn are to help cover household expenses and for her two children’s education. Her greatest wish is that her children stay in school so that they will have their own source of income.

The members of the group are:

Rosalba, Angélica, Soledad, Estela, Ignacia, Altagracia, Ilda (Fast Food Sales)
Celerina y Emilia (Chicken Sales)
Reyna (Clay Pot Making)

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.
