The members of this group are originally from Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca, a place made up of indigenous hardworking people.

The majority of the inhabitants dress in petticoats and mandils (a type of apron), most of them work making tamales, handmade tortillas and food like the delicious chicken and fish soup.

One of the members of this group is Mrs. Maribel who is twenty-seven years old, she is well-known for being a happy and hardworking woman who sells Mexican treats like: fried tacos, enchiladas (filled rolled tortillas covered with sauce), tostadas de tinja (spicy stewed chicken tostadas) and chicken empanadas (chicken stuffed pastries).

She tells us that she has sold Mexican treats for some four months.

Mrs. Maribel is a single mother; she has two children, Yael Uriel who is three years old and Gabriela who is a year old. They are the reason why she decided to start her business along with her mother’s support, Alberta, who is a hardworking woman.

She needs the loan to buy more ingredients like: dried green chili, onions, garlic, jitomate (a type of tomato), cheese, oil and chicken.

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.
