This group is called “La Amistad” (Friendship). The members selected this name because they are purely friends since they have known one another for some time. This profile will focus on Sra. Adalberta. She is 55 years old, married, and six children, all of whom are married. Adalberta has been preparing and selling Mexican street food for five years.

She decided to start this business because she needed to find a way to help her husband with the household expenses, improving their quality of life, and establishing a better financial situation. In addition, she wanted to secure the future for herself and her husband by generating a good income. The loan she is requesting will be invested in the purchase of more supplies such as oil, salt, tomatoes, chili peppers, potatoes, onions, meat, chicken, and corn so that she can continue preparing her delicious street food.

Doña Ada (as she is better known in her community) says her goal is to grow her business even more. She wants to build an establishment where she can open a restaurant and work toward a better future. Ada wants to be well-stocked so that she can improve and increase her revenue.

She says that all of her fellow group members are responsible people who fulfill their obligations. They enjoy working so that they can move forward and overcome any difficulty. For some time, they have been known for being consistent with their payments since they do not want to betray the trust that has been shown to them.

On behalf of herself and her family, Doña Ada would like to thank Fundación Realidad and Kiva for changing her life. She is now able to achieve a better lifestyle.

In addition to Doña Adalberta, the other members are as follows: Victor, Santa C., Santa C. (there are two women with the same name), María, Magali, Rubicela, Ubalda, and Ivett. They engage in different retail businesses selling clothes, groceries, food, corn, meat, tamales, fish, Mexican street food, fruits, and vegetables.

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.
