This group is called Lucina Tacubaya. It consists of four people who are hard-working, happy, and humble, and want to aim ever higher and improve their businesses to offer benefits to their community, since they want to grow as retailers.

One of the members of the group is Señora Lucina, a woman who is 69 years old. She tells us that she is known as a hard-working and humble woman who wants to improve her grocery store so that her fellow citizens can find what they need and don't have to travel to do their weekly shopping. Furthermore, she gives credit to people since they sometimes don't bring enough money, and she gives them the products and later they come by to pay her.

She is applying for the loan to buy more merchandise to sell, such as crackers, soft drinks, mayonnaise, chilies. onions, beans, rice, oil, lard, soups, soap, powdered detergent, Suavitel (fabric softener), bread, milk, coffee, sugar, cheeses, and eggs.

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.
