Ebenezer Group
In this Group: Julia, Letcia, Gloria, Ignacio German, Tomasa Dominga
This group is called “Ebenezer” and it’s made up of five humble people from a small town called “San Juan Bautista Lo de Soto” where you can admire nature because there are many green trees; the weather is hot. It’s a town where you can see children running in the streets playing completely free and with no violence.

One of the members of this group is Ignacio German, 49, who is noted for being a somewhat quiet, hardworking man. Don Ignacio, as he’s better known by his fellow members and neighbors, owns a taxi that he works every day of the week except when he’s planting corn transporting his neighbors in the community to the nearest city which is Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca.

He also tells us that he works farming corn. What he likes best about farming corn is that most seasons he gets good harvests and this makes him feel successful because he can have more profits and more corn.

Because Don Ignacio is diversified in his businesses, this time he asked for the loan to use in his taxi service. He will buy spare parts for the taxi. However, the loan will have an impact on both businesses because he will use profits from his taxi to plant corn.

He tells us that he’s very grateful to the Fundación for having opened doors to a new path to continue with his business and improve his and his community’s life.

The other group members are:

Julia- sells meat
Leticia- sells food
Gloria- pottery
Tomasa Dominga – sells cheese

They thank the Fundación for giving them the opportunity to stay in business to thus improve their lives.

Este grupo se llama Ebenezer esta integrado por cinco personas humildes de un pequeño pueblo llamado "San Juan Bautista lo de Soto" donde puedes admirar la naturaleza ya que hay muchos árboles verdes y el clima es caluroso, es un pueblo donde se puede ver a los niños correr por las calles jugando con plena libertad y sin violencia.
Uno de los integrantes de este grupo es el señor Ignacio German de cuarenta y nueva años de edad, se caracteriza por ser un señor trabajador y un poco callado.
Don Ignacio como mejor lo conocen sus compañeras de grupo y sus paisanos es dueño de un taxi lo trabajada todos los días de la semana menos cuando siembra maíz ya que traslada a sus paisanos de su comunidad a la ciudad mas cercana que es Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca.
También nos cuenta que se dedica a la siembra de maíz, lo que mas le gusta de la siembra de maíz es que la mayoría de las temporadas tiene buena cosecha y eso lo hace sentir exitoso ya que puede tener mas ganancias y mas maíz.
Debido a que Don Ignacio es diversificado en sus negocios, esta vez ha solicitado el préstamo para utilizarlo en su servicio de taxi, él va a comprar refacciones para su taxi, sin embargo éste préstamo impactará en los dos negocios ya que las ganancias que tenga del taxi las utilizará en la siembra de maiz.
Nos dice que esta muy agradecido con fundacion por abrirle las puertas a un nuevo rumbo que es seguir con su negocio y mejorar su vida y su comunidad.
Los otros integrantes del grupo son:
Julia- se dedica a la venta de carne.

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.
