Estrellas Group
In this Group: Clementina Maria, Maria Angelica, Clara, Estela, Maria Trinidad
Trinidad is 41 years old and is a member of the 'Las Estrellas' community bank. For seven years she has been renting avocado and peach orchards whose fruit she picks and then sells in the local wholesale food market by the bucket. She says that she really enjoys her work because it leaves her time to care for her children as she goes out very early in the morning to sell her fruit and in the afternoon she is free to do her housework.

Trinidad is married to Jesús who also sells fruit. The couple have two children: 9-year-old Eduardo who is in elementary school and 18-year-old Mayra who is in high school. Trinidad says that she is requesting a loan so that she can rent an additional orchard which will make her a little more profit so that she can have a little more money saved up for dealing with any emergencies that her daughter or any other members of her family might experience. Trinidad's daughter Mayra has suffered from childhood-onset diabetes since she was 11 years old and she has to be alert because sometimes her blood sugar levels rise. She has to keep control of the situation, both in terms of what she eats and her medication, so that she doesn't fall ill because medicines are very expensive. Trinidad's goal is to own her own orchard. She would like to buy a large plot of land where she can grow a little of all the fruits that grow in her region.

The other five members of this group are Clementina, María Angélica, Clara and Estela. They will invest their loans in buying organic fertilizers and insecticides for their avocado orchards. They will also buy chickens and lambs.

Trinidad tiene 41 años de edad y es parte del grupo Las Estrellas, desde hace 7 años se dedica a la renta de huertas de aguacate y durazno para después cortar la fruta y venderla en la central de abastos por cubetas. Dice que le gusta mucho su trabajo porque tiene tiempo de atender a sus hijos ya que desde muy temprano sale a vender sus frutos y ya en la tarde está desocupada para hacer los quehaceres de su casa. Ella está casada con el señor Jesús el cual también se dedica a la venta de frutas, ellos tiene dos hijos de nombres Eduardo de 9 años estudiante de primaria y Mayra de 18 años la cual estudia la preparatoria. Dice que está pidiendo un crédito para la así poder rentar otra huerta mas con la cual va a tener un poco mas de ganancias y así poder tener un poco mas de dinero ahorrado por cualquier emergencia que tenga su hija o su familia ya que la enfermedad de su hija Mayra que desde los 11 años padece que es diabetes infantil tiene que estar muy al pendiente de ella porque abeces le sube el azúcar y tiene que tenerla muy controlada tanto en su alimentación como en sus medicamentos para que no se ponga mal porque el medicamento sale muy caro. La meta que tiene Doña Trinidad es hacer su propia huerta comprar un gran terreno donde pueda cultivar un poco de todos los frutos que se dan en su región. Las otras cinco personas se llaman Clementina, María Angélica, Clara y Estela ellas invertirán sus créditos en abonos orgánicos e insecticidas para sus huertas de aguacate y pollos y borregos.


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.
