La Cruz  De Tete Group
In this Group: Rafela , Teresa , Sofia, Elidia, Avelina, Senorina, Victoria, Berta, Yolanda, Marcela, Veronica
This group is named “La Cruz de Tete” (The Cross of Tete) and consists of 11 indigenous women who enjoy knitting. They have not lost touch with their roots since everyone in this town knows how to embroider and knit.


One of the members is Sra. Elidia. There is always a group that gathers around her. Sra. Elidia is 71 years old and produces and sells tablecloths, napkins, purses, shawls, and traditional dresses known as “huipiles”. She says that she enjoys this business tremendously because she sees that other women buy many traditional dresses and wear them to a party or some other special event.


Elidia is happily married to Sr. Procopio, who is 52. She says that even though her husband is younger than her, he is a hardworking and responsible man. Elidia indicates that she is not concerned about her own welfare. Her four children are already married, so she and her husband only have each other. Doña Elidia also sells meat on the weekends, offering beef and chicken by the piece. She is very pleased with all of the opportunities that God has given her so that she can succeed in life. Elidia is requesting a loan to buy colored thread, white and colored sheets, needles, knitting hooks, and embroidery rings. She is very pleased and appreciative of the support that Fundación Realidad has given her so that she can move forward and fulfill her dreams, as well as for helping indigenous people and communities that want to succeed.

• Rafaela makes napkins and tablecloths.

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.
