This group is called 'El Puente' (The Bridge). It is made up of ten indigenous, hard-working women who would like to improve their lives and those of their families.

The members of this group are from Pinotepa Nacional which is home to good, hard-working people. In Pinotepa Nacional, there are a lot of people who run small businesses. It is a reflection of their hard work and their desire to make progress.

One of the members of this group is Adelfa Celsa who is 40 years old. Celsa, as she is better known among her fellow group members, is noted for being a kind, hard-working lady.

Celsa's business is selling Mexican snacks. She has been in this business for three years. What she most enjoys about her business is serving her customers and cooking for them with love.

However, what Celsa does not enjoy is having to stay awake so late because she sells her snacks at nighttime, getting out her table and her dishes.

Celsa also works as a locksmith, making duplicates of keys. She has been in this business for ten years. She is very happy because her two businesses make her good profits and she is thereby able to enjoy a better quality of life.

Celsa is happily married to Gonzalo and the couple have three daughters: Araceli, Jessica and Liliana, who are their pride and joy.

Celsa requested this loan to buy more ingredients for making Mexican snacks such as tomatoes, onions, garlic, cheese, 'quesillo' (soft cheese), chicken and tortillas. She will use the rest of the money to buy more keys and padlocks for her locksmith business.

Celsa tells us that she is very happy with Fundación Realidad for helping her to continue to grow her business.

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.
