This group is made up of ten indigenous women who work in different business activities. They formed this group as they are neighbors from the same community.

This group is called 'Santiago Apostol' as its members are devout followers of the saint of Santiago Apostol. The group's representative is Silvia. She is 37 years old and happily married to Perfecto. The couple have four children who are all in school. It was Silvia who invited people to join this group. Her business is selling bread and she is very well known in her town as she makes delicious bread. She has been in this business for twenty years and always has very good sales. In addition to selling bread in her town, she also sells her bread elsewhere so that people are able to taste delicious Jicayan bread.

Silvia requested this loan to buy more supplies for making bread (butter, flour, unrefined sugar, etc.) so that she can produce more and make more profits which she uses so that her children can continue studying and she can continue repaying her loan.

The women who make up this group are:
Soledad - who sells bread.
Maria - who sells embroidered dresses.
Emilia - who sells hand-made clothes.
Juana - who sells Mexican snacks.
Irene - who sells Mexican snacks.
Consuelo - who sells Mexican snacks.
Deysi - who sells costume jewelry.
Eva - who sells shoes.
Macedonia - who sells groceries.

The women thank Fundacion Realidad for the support that they have provided to enable them to get ahead in life and fulfill their dreams, and for being part of this miracle so that they can enjoy a better quality of life.

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.
