“Chicas Trabajadoras” (Hard-Working Girls) is a group of seven people who live in a neighborhood in the city of Monterrey. They have been friends for many years, so they know each other very well. They say that they are very hard-working women (as their name says) in addition to the huge amount of trust that exists between them.

Graciela is one of them. She is a very serious and responsible woman. She has a small used tool stand that she and her husband started with little merchandise. In time their business has been gradually growing.

She now has a greater variety of products, and with help from the loan she will be able to buy more used tools. She will also invest in other products like comforters to sell at her house.

Her dream is to continue growing with her business in order to cover the household expenses and to be able to live more comfortably.

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.
