This story is about Florentina who is the representative of a group called “El Campo de Huixtepec.” She’s 54 years old and married to Maximino who is a farmer; they have seven children but only Arturo who is in sixth grade still lives with them, the other six are married. She makes and sells traditional, artisanal clothes like dresses, blouses, napkins and tablecloths; she’s been doing this for more than 30 years.

She says she decided to go into this business because she wanted to find a way to help her husband cover household expenses and costs of their son’s schooling as well as enjoy better economic solvency and an excellent quality of life. Besides, she says that since she was a little girl her mother taught her how to embroider so this is why she decided to start this business. The loan she got will be used to buy more supplies like fabric, quadrille, thread, needles, embroidery hoops and beads to continue with her sales.

Doña Flor (as she’s better known in her community) says that her goal is to make her business grow businesswise because she wants to build a locale because what she wants most is to open her artisanal clothing store so that what they do in her community will become better known and also to have it well-stocked this way with more articles of clothing to earn better profits.

She thanks FRAC and Kiva lenders for giving her the opportunity and for trusting her but, above all, for believing in her, because thanks to your help she was able to invest in her business and have a better quality of life with her family and a better future.

The people who form the “El Campo de Huixtepec” group are the following: Victoria, Florentina, Carmela and Etelvina who manufacture and sell artisanal clothing.

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.
