The group "Luna" is made up of 10 women who are very hard-working and nice. They live in a community that is known for being surrounded by rubber trees and the climate is warm. In this community the majority of inhabitants speak the Nahuatl dialect and they have called their group "Luna" or moon since that is the name of the daughter of one member of the group.

Susana is one of the members of this group. She is 45 years old, studied through elementary school, and is a single mother of two, the oldest of whom is studying in college and the youngest attends high school in the community.

Susana tells us that because she is a single mother she has had to work in order to help her children get ahead. Thanks to God she has been able to work hard every day. She comments that for the past 25 years she has been working selling Mexican appetizers and soft drinks. She makes sales every morning and afternoon from her home. She puts some tables out in front of her home where she can arrange her containers with ingredients for preparing appetizers and as customers arrive to make purchases she prepares their food so that they can eat tasty and hot snacks.

Susana says that thanks to God her sales have gone well and a little over a year ago she began to sell sweets in order to earn a bit of extra money.

She needs this loan in order to invest in the purchase of a variety of sweets, soft drinks, tomatoes, chiles, onion, beans, corn, creme, cheese, beef and chicken, potatoes, bananas and eggs for making her appetizers and thereby to accomplish her sales.

She said "I hope that this credit will help me to improve my business and so that I can pay for a career for my two children. Thanks to Kiva and the Fundación for the support that they have given me and my other group members.

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.
