In this Group: Maria, Ana Laura, Minerva, Ignacia De Jesus , Braulia Gabriela, Adan Urbano, Caritina, Maria Julia
This group is called "Los Almendritos 1" ("The little almonds 1"). The members of the group decided to name it that way because there are many almond trees around the house where they gather.
This story is about Braulia GabrieL., who is a member of the group. She is 27 years old and married to Agustín, who is a rural worker. They have children named Ricardo, Jennifer and Daysi. Only two of the children go to school - the oldest one just got into the third year of elementary school, the younger one is in the second year of preschool, and the baby is only 10 months old.
She has been making and selling typical Mexican snacks for three years. Braulia decided to get into this business because she says there is much demand for it and she makes very good profits. Also, she wanted to find a way to get her children ahead in order to improve their quality of life.
She used the loan to purchase more supplies such as red tomatoes, different kinds of pepper, potatoes, onions, chicken, meat, corn, olive oil, salt, etc., so that she can continue making her tasty snacks.
Gaby (as she is better known to her customers) hopes that someday she will be able to achieve her dream. She dreams of building a place where she can establish her restaurant and increase her production, which is her biggest wish. She also wishes to improve and increase her profits so that she can continue to proviD. education for her children and ensure their future.
She reports that the members of the group are very responsible, hardworking and punctual people. They have known each other for a long time and get along very well, because they live in the same neighborhood.
She is very thankful to Fundación Realidad and Kiva for the support and the loan she has been granted, since because of it, her business has been going much better.
Other fellow members of Gaby's group are María, Anal Aura, Minerva, Ignacia, Adán, Caritina and María Julia. They are in various activities such as selling corn, wood, chickens, food, clothing, shoes, soft drinks, tamales and some groceries.

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.
