Las Palomas 1 Group
In this Group: Beatriz , Patricia , Cresenciano , Ernestina
This group is called "Las Palomas 1" (The Doves 1) and is composed of four humble, indigenous people who want to get ahead in life for themselves and their families.They are natives of a small town called San Juanito in the municipality of San Juan Jicayan, where the majority of citizens speak the Mixteco language. One of this community's traditions is the town party that is celebrated on July 24, which is Santiago Apóstol Day.

One of the women is a seamstress and the men grow corn. One of the group members is Beatriz, who is 25 years old. She is a quiet and happy person. Beti, as her group members know her, tells us that she has been selling napkins and tamales for five years now. The different kinds of tamales she makes are: tichinda (black clams), shrimp, chicken, fish and pork ribs.

The people go to buy tamales at her house. She sells them 3 times a week and her customers already know on which days she sells them. What she likes most about her business is when she prepares the chile that she puts on the meat. It gives a good flavor without being too spicy.

One of the things that hinders her business is that she sometimes does not have the resources to buy the necessary ingredients to make her tamales.
She is taking out the loan to buy more ingredients to make tamales, such as: green chile, dried chile, tomato, onion, garlic, banana leaves to wrap the tamal in.

She is grateful to the Fundación for its support and above all, for helping indigenous women. They don't discriminate against anyone for their language or for the way they dress.

The other group members are: Patricia - she sells embroidery, Cresenciano - she sells cattle, Ernestina - she sells fish. They are grateful to the Fundación for helping all those people who wish to better themselves.

Este grupo se llama "Las Palomas 1" esta conformado por cuatro personas humildes, indígenas con deseos de salir adelante cambiar sus vidas y la de su familia.
Son originarios de un pequeño pueblo llamado San Juanito municipio de San Juan Jicayan donde la mayoría de los ciudadanos hablan el idioma Mixteco, alguna de las mujeres se dedican a tejer y los hombres se dedican a la siembra de maíz.
Una de las tradiciones de la comunidad es la fiesta del pueblo que se celebra los días 24 de julio que es el día de Santiago Apóstol.
Una de las integrantes de este grupo es la señorita Beatriz de veinte cinco años de edad, es una persona alegre y un poco platicadora.
Beti como mejor la conocen sus compañeras de grupo nos dice que se dedica a la venta de servilletas y de tamales desde hace cinco años los distintos sabores de tamales que hace son: tichinda (almeja de color negro), camarón, pollo, pescado y costilla de marrano.
Nos cuenta su venta la realiza comentando en su comunidad que tiene tamales y así la gente va a comprar tamales a su casa, ella vende 3 veces a la semana entonces las personas ya saben cuales son los días que ella vende.
Lo que mas le gusta de su negocio es cuando elabora el chile que le va poner a la carne para que no salga muy picoso y el Tamale tenga un buen sabor.
Una de las cosas que le impiden seguir con su negocio es que en ocasiones no tiene los recursos para comprar el necesario para hacer sus tamales.
Ella pidió el crédito para la compra de más ingredientes para la elaboración de tamales como son:
Chile verde, chile seco, jitomate, cebolla, ajo, hojas de plátano para envolver el tamal, manteca, carne y camarón.
Nos dice que con el crédito desea adquirir más maíz para la elaboración de tamales y para su alimentación.
Le da las gracias a fundacion por el apoyo y sobre todo por ayudara a las mujeres indígenas y no discriminara a nadie por su lengua y vestimenta.
Las otras integrantes del grupo son:
Patricia- se dedica a la venta de bordados.
Cresenciano- se dedica a la venta de ganado.

Le dan las gracias a fundacion por ayudar a todas las personas con deseos de superarse.

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.
