This group is called “Doña Amelia.” Its members decided to call it that because they identify with their group. It has ten members who wish to improve day to day since each has their own business, thanks to God.

The group member is Amelia who has been selling meat for thirty years. She tells us that what she likes best about her work is slaughtering the beef and butchering the meat. She is happily married to Roberto who supports her efforts and also sells meat. Doña Ame, like people in her community call her, is a hardworking, humble, tenacious woman who goes out to neighboring towns to sell when sales drop in her own location. She has a son who helps her kill the steers and helps her tend to customers. She requested the loan to buy knives and a butcher’s block.

The other group members are:

Teofila-sells Mexican fast food snacks.
María-sells clothes.
Constancia-sells chickens.
Elías-sells bread.
Alma- sells Mexican fast food snacks.

She thanks the Fundación for the support it’s given her to get ahead and succeed in life and continue reaching her dreams.

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.
