In this Group: Gabriela, Isabel, Marciana, Alejandra, Maria Isabel
This group is called 'Las Dueñas'. The members chose this name because it was the only one they could come up with. This story is about Alejandra who is one of the members of this group. She is 31 years old, a single mother and has one son, Leonardo, who is in his fourth year of elementary school. Alejandra's business is selling soft drinks. She has been in this business for one year.

Alejandra says that she decided to start out in this business as she wanted to find a way to provide for her son and offer him a better education and quality of life. She also wanted to enjoy good financial solvency. She will invest the loan that she has been given in buying more soft drinks, water and juice, so that she can continue making her sales.

Alejandra's goal is to provide her son with a very good education so that he can study for a good degree and work in a good profession, so that he can enjoy a better future. She also wants to grow her business a lot further. She is planning to start building business premises so that she can open a soft drinks warehouse. This will enable her to have a lot more stock and a greater variety of products, which means she will increase and improve her income.

Alejandra says that all the members of her group are very trustworthy, responsible people and, above all, they are very hard working.

Alejandra is grateful to FRAC and Kiva because, thanks to them, she has been able to run her own business and thereby change her own life as well as that of her family.

Alejandra's fellow group members are Gabriela, Isabel, Marciana and María Isabel. They work in different business activities such as selling soft drinks, selling food, selling groceries, selling tamales, etc.

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.
