Florentina Sayultepec Group
In this Group: Rosalia , Edith, Florentina, Eugenia , Juana , Maria De La Luz, Floriberta , Lucia , Araceli
This group is called Florentina Sayultepec. It consists of nine members who are hard-working indigenous women with the desire to overcome and improve their quality of life. The members of the group are from a town called San Francisco Sayultepec, a little town where there are many large green trees. On the edge is a river that divides their town from a little town called Ipalapa.

One of the members of this group is Florentina, who is 57 years old. She has five children who are already married. She tells us that her work is making and selling handicrafts, such as blouses, tablecloths, and napkins. She tells us that she goes out to sell her merchandise in the neighborhoods of her community, and she goes to sell in Acapulco for a week and stays with her relatives. What she likes most about her business is sewing and embroidering, since she has liked to do this since she was very young, because her mother did the same work. One of the challenges that impedes her from continuing with her business is that sometimes she sells very little, but she also sells a lot, but when she doesn't have sales she becomes discouraged and sad. She is applying for the loan to buy more materials to make more blouses, napkins, and tablecloths, such as tablecloths, needles, ribbons, sewing thread, and strings of beads. She tells us that she is going to save her earnings for an operation on her foot, since she fractured it three months ago, but thanks to God she has had good earnings for the operation on her foot since it is hard for her to walk rapidly. She is thankful to the foundation for helping her so that she can continue with her business and above all for helping her companions so that they can enlarge their businesses and improve their quality of life.

The other members of the group are Rosalia, who sells clothing; Edith, who sells groceries; Eugenia, who sells Mexican snacks; Juana, who sells cheese; Maria de la Luz, who sells embroidery; Floriberta, who sells embroidery; Lucia, who sells embroidery; and Araceli, who sells embroidery. They give thanks to the foundation for helping them so that their lives get better every day.

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.
