This group is called Mujeres Trabajando and is made up of thirteen hardworking women who work selling and making traditional clothing. One of the members of this group is Honoria, a 66-year-old woman. She is a hardworking and happy woman who has worked since she was little and has learned how difficult it is to have food to eat.

She works selling sweets, from the cheapest to the most expensive. She goes to parties in her community so her fellow community members can buy sweets from her. She tells us that she likes selling her sweets a lot because it gives her good profits. She has worked selling sweets for ten years.

She requested the loan to buy more candy, and thread and fabric to make traditional clothing. She very much likes to weave but what she most likes, and it is her life, is selling candy because it pleases her a lot to sell her candy in the streets of her community.

The other members of the group are Sofía, Francisca Felisa, Alba, Eloína, Sebastiana Hermila, Victoria María, Emilia, Catalina, Sofía Honoria, Dominga, and Julia Lucía, who sell traditional clothing; and Gabriela, who sells groceries and traditional clothing. They are grateful to the foundation for the support it gives to hardworking women who want to improve their lives and those of their families, and to dress themselves and their compatriots in traditional outfits with Mexican labor.

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.
