This group is called "El Nanchito" and is comprised of 11 hard-working women who want to improve their small businesses and their childrens' quality of life. All of them strive to give their children a better life for the future of the country.

All are from the city of Pinotepa where "las chilenas" dancing is popular and where most of the inhabitants are indigenous and need the foundation's help to improve their lives.

One of the members of the group is Mrs. Cecilia, 42, who is a hard-working, humble woman who wants to expand her business. Doña Ceci, as she is known by her colleagues in the group, has been selling vegetables for three years. She also teaches at the community school and claims that from a very young age she was always interested in teaching and helping children with slow learning skills.

She tells us about one of her business experiences. When she started teaching she decided to sell vegetables as a way to increase her income, but did not know how to get started. Later she learned about the foundation's loan program and started her business thanks to help from the foundation. Her business is growing daily and she is earning enough to help her niece, Maria del Rosario, who she loves very much and works for, teaching and selling vegetables.

She has requested a loan to buy more vegetables such as: potatoes, chili peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, squash, carrots, green tomatoes, coriander, lettuce and papaya. She is grateful to the foundation for supporting working women who want to improve their family's lifestyles.

The other members of the group are:

Bernarda Alejandrina - who sells Mexican snacks.
Primitiva Balbina - who sells cheese.
Austreberta Virginia - who sells dough and nixtamal.
Yolanda - who sells fried meats.
Alba Leonila - who sells clothing.
Gloria Rosalba - who sells softdrinks.
Gloria Josefa - who sells groceries.
Isabel Josefa - who sells popsicles.
Yolanda - who sells food.

They are grateful to the foundation for giving people the resources to get ahead and go into business so they can give their families, especially the children, a better lifestyle.

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.
