Altamirano Group
In this Group: David, Victoria, Patricia, Ambrosia, Anita, Crescencia, Teresa, Elvira
The Altamarino group is from the San Pedro community in San Felipe del Progreso. The group is comprised of seven women and one man, and they are very hard workers. Each member of this group is married and has a family. Each one of them strives day to day to get ahead. They devote themselves to raising animals like pigs, sheep, chickens, and turkeys. They do this in order to get income and to help when they can with the expenses, be it for their children in school or for the store in the house.

Also, because they do not work, which is to say that they do not have fixed employment that gives them a salary, they wish to invest part of their time in something that will be productive so they can support their life partners. They want to do this so that, together, they can get ahead with all of their current necessities. It is worth mentioning that the people in this group are very responsible and hard working. They like working in order to improve their lives.

The San Pedro community is one of the most advanced communities in the municipality. It has all of the public services like water and drainage, a hospital, schools, and a gas station. It is also a densely populated community with a lot of vegetation. Additionally, the community has a lot of professionals and a lot of children attending school. The group decided upon the name of “Altamirano” because it is the name of an important writer.

The names of the eight members are:

1.-David S., age 42, is requesting his loan to buy 4 sheep and grass to feed them.
2.-Victoria R., age 26, is requesting the loan to buy 2 sheep, 2 pigs, and feed to raise them.
3.-Patricia C., age 34, is requesting her loan to buy 4 pigs, 30 chickens, feed, and corn to raise them.
4.-Ambrosia G., age 62, is requesting her loan to buy 2 pigs, 10 turkeys, 20 chickens, feed, and corn to raise them.
5.-Anita R., age 23, is requesting the loan to buy 5 pigs and food to raise them.
6.-Crescencia G., age 45, is asking for the loan to buy 10 pigs, feed, and corn to raise them.
7.-Teresa B., age 32, requested the loan to buy 5 sheep and grass to raise them.
8.-Elvira S., age 43, is requesting the loan to buy 2 pigs, 2 sheep, grass, and corn to raise them.

Crescencia, age 45, is the representative of the group. She has been married for 27 years to Crisanto, who works as a bricklayer. They have three children. The oldest is 29 and married. The next one is 20 and also married. The youngest is 17 and is in the last year of high school.

Crescencia and her husband live in their own house, which is to say that they do not pay rent. The reason that Crescencia decided to join this group is because of the desire to undertake a business. “I am a person who likes to buy and sell my animals. This is because I realize that at times my husband does not have work, and I help him. I am one of those people who devote themselves to many things in order to help with my expenses and to help my family. I do not like to stop working. I like taking care of the animals constantly so that I am not left without anything to get ahead,” says Crescencia.

“My business activity consists of, once I receive my loan, going to the farms where they sell “lechones” (this is what the pigs are called when they are still very little). I do not have to go very far because there is a farm in my community. I buy the pigs that I am going to raise, and I take them to my house where I have my pen. I feed them, and I inject them so they will grow. When they grow I buy feed to fatten them, and then I sell them. The people in my community know me, they know that I raise pigs, and they come to me,” Crescencia says proudly.

Crescencia says that so far, thanks to God, she has not had any difficulty carrying out her business activity. She has not had illnesses, and things in general have gone well for her.

Crescencia’s goals are very clear. She would like to make repairs to her house with the received income. Above all, she wants her children to lack for nothing.

The loan that the institución grants her will be a big help to her in reaching her goals and to continue making progress.

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.
