El Rincon Group
In this Group: Gonzalo, Jose Juan, Lucila, Aucencio
Lucila is 38 years old and is part of the "El Rincon" group. The Mazahua culture still predominates in this community, where the women wear Mazahua traditional clothing and speak Mazahua. Luci, as her friends and family call her,, is married to Antonio, and they have five children, named Alexis, Marco Antonio, Mercedes, Edgar, and Diana. The last two are in secondary school, and the youngest, Alexis, is in primary school.

Luci sells seasonal fruits that she grows, and she makes typical clothing of the Mazahua culture, which she has been selling in her community for more than 20 years. She says that she is applying for a loan for the purchase of organic fertilizers and for insecticides, since she has a number of avocado, peach, guava, and black cherry trees. She also sometimes grows manzano chile peppers, radishes, and tomatoes at her house, since she has ample land, and when it is the harvest season she says that she sells her fruits and vegetables in a central area in her community. She says that she has been in this business a little more than 5 years and that she did well when she set it up, since it gives her good earnings and thus she can give her children a better quality of life and help her husband with the household expenses. She is very happy because through the loans she has set her sights every higher, and little by little she is making her dream -- to have an orchard in good condition -- a reality. One of her goals is to buy a vehicle, which will facilitate the transport of her fruits and vegetables, since she pays freight charges to transport what she grows.

The other three members of the group are Gonzalo, Jose Juan, and Aucencio, who will invest their loans in seasonal fruits and vegetables and groceries.

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.
