Las Posesionarias are a support group in the town of Monterrey, Nuevo León. This group is made up of 11 people who have distinguished themselves for being a group that makes its payments on time and they say the key is being a very close group with a lot of communication.

Sandra is one of the women in the group. She is 35 years old and lives with her husband. They have 2 children, a 12 year old boy and a 7 year old girl. They are in middle and primary school. Seven months ago, Sandra decided to open a small paper store in her home. She has stocked it little by little, but she still needs a wider variety of products to compete with the more established paper stores in the neighborhood. She hopes that with the help of this loan, she will finally be able to stock her store with the products she is lacking to be able to establish herself as one of the leading paper stores in the neighborhood. She hopes that in the next few years she can keep growing with her business and someday enlarge the space where she has her paper store.

Las Posesionarias son un grupo solidario en el municipio de Monterrey, Nuevo León. Este grupo está compuesto por 11 personas quienes se han distinguido por ser un grupo muy puntual para sus pagos y dicen que la clave para esto es ser al grupo muy unido y con una muy buena comunicación.

Sandra es una de las señoras del grupo. Ella tiene 35 años y junto con su esposo tienen 2 hijos, un niño de 12 años y una pequeña niña de 7 los cuales actualmente están estudiando en la secundaria y en la primaria. Hace 7 meses Sandra decidió poner una pequeña papelería en su domicilio. Ella poco a poco ha ido surtiendo la papelería, sin embargo todavía le falta una variedad más amplia de productos para competir con otras papelerías más establecidas que hay por la colonia. Ella espera que con la ayuda de este crédito finalmente pueda surtir su papelería con los productos que le faltan para así poder empezar a establecerse como una de las papelerías líderes de la colonia. Ella espera en los siguientes años poder seguir creciendo con su negocio y algún día poder ampliar el espacio donde tiene su papelería.

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.
