Capilla San Juan Group
In this Group: Alejandro , Gregoria , Ignacia, Magdalena, Paula , Antonio, Porfiria, Maria Guadalupe, Maria , Sofia, Juana
This group is called “Capilla San Juan” (Saint John Chapel) and it has 11 members, two men and nine women. All the members live in the same location where transportation is very scarce. One has to walk several kilometers to reach the place where the group meets. Only the special taxis go there but hardly anyone contracts this type of taxi because they are very expensive and they don’t have enough money for them so they decide to walk. They decided to call it Capilla San Juan because the place where the group meets is next to a chapel which is the most important one in the community and San Juan because that’s the name of the community the chapel is located in.

Magalena, 46, is group representative. She’s been married to Martín for 29 years. Four children were born to this couple and they are all still dependent. Laura, 17, is no longer in school, Amalia, 15, is no longer in school either, Amancio, 12, who is in second year of secondary school and Anayeli, 9, who is in elementary school.

Magdalena runs the school store where her daughter Anayeli attends which is why she was given this store. She’s been in business two years and the only difficulty she’s had is that sales dropped very much when she was forbidden to sell sweets and junk food for the children. This hurt sales because now children bring lunches from home and don’t buy from Magdalena anymore.

This time she’s asking for the loan to buy apples, oranges and one or the other sweet that she has been authorized to sell. She also prepares meals but only for the teachers.

Her goal is to manage to have another business where she can sell vegetables. She and the group are grateful and they commented: “Thanks to the loan we’ve been able to make our businesses grow and this has improved out quality of life.”

All the group members will invest their loans differently. Alejandro will invest in his taxi service; Gregoria, Paula, María, Sofía and Juana will buy sheep; Ignacia in a store and in sheep; Antonia in a store and Guadalupe in clothes.

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.
