San Francisco Group
In this Group: Beatriz, Brenda Alicia, Denisse Anabell, July Susana, Maria Alejandra, Mayra
San Francisco is a very good and supportive group in its first cycle. Six very hardworking women who are engaged in trade, in order to help and provide for their families, formed it. They meet weekly and are located in the municipality of General Escobedo. They decided on the name of the group because this is the street where most of them live.

Beatriz, a member of the group, is 43 years old and has 5 children, most of them working and happily married, living in the city of General Escobedo, Nuevo León.

Her husband and children suggested that she sell food, at a factory where he works, and neighbors and people she knows also order her food because of its exquisite and delicious flavor.

She just received her first loan not only to improve, but also to increase her sales in her micro-business in order to provide for the family and help her husband with the household expenses. Beatriz is a fighter who wants to succeed and go forward in life. One of her major goals is to build a concrete grill since now she has to cook with firewood, which is a bit difficult and uncomfortable. However, that has not stopped her from getting ahead. With hard work she continues to sell and expand to more locations.

San Francisco es un grupo solidario muy bueno y se encuentra en su 1º ciclo. Esta conformado por 6 mujeres muy trabajadoras las cuales se dedican al comercio, para así poder ayudar a sacar adelante a sus familias; sus reuniones semanales están ubicadas en el municipio General Escobedo. Ellas desdieron ponerle ese nombre al grupo, ya que así se llama la calle en donde se encuentran las viviendas de la mayoría.

Beatriz es integrante del grupo, tiene 43 años de edad, 5 hijos la mayoría ya casados y trabajando y vive felizmente casada en la ciudad General Escobedo, Nuevo León. Beatriz se dedica a la venta de comida por recomendación de su esposo (en la fabrica en donde labora) e hijos, ademas de que sus vecinos y conocidos les hacen pedidos por tener un esquisto y rico sazón.

Ella acaba de recibir su primer crédito para poder no solo mejorar, si no elevar sus ventas en su micronegocio y así poder salir adelante y ayudar a su esposo con los gastos en casa.

Beatriz es una mujer muy luchadora que desea salir adelante y progresar en la vida; una de las mayores metas de Beatriz es construir una parrilla de concreto ya que actualmente tiene que cocinar con leña lo cual le parece un poco difícil e incomodo, aunque eso no ha sido un impedimento para salir adelante, con mucho empeño seguir vendiendo y extender sus ventas a mas lugares.

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.
