Soledad is one of the 11 members of a group called Igualdad in the community of Tetela, in a sugarcane-growing area in the state of Oaxaca. The majority of the residents work growing sugarcane, because only 15 minutes away is Ingenio La Margarita, one of the main sugar producers in the region.

Soledad, 52, studied up to secondary school and is the single mother of a 22-year-old who studies in the university. For a little more than 22 years Soledad has sold Mexican "antojitos" [traditional corn-based foods] and daily specials in a small place she has in her home, which is located on the side of the highway near a bus stop. This helps her increase her sales. It is a perfect place to sell because there are many regular customers. She gets up early to start with her sales. Everybody knows her because of the seasoning and the service she offers.

Soledad needs the loan to buy a variety of chiles and tortillas, meat, tomatoes, onions, beans, salt, oil, sodas, garlic, cilantro, and disposable plates to continue with her sales. She hopes that with this investment her business will continue progressing, because in the future she would like to remodel to give her customers better service.

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.
