Las Chicas Del Rio Group
In this Group: Dolores, Erika Maribel, Maria Teresa, Martha Patricia, Nohelia Griselda, Olga Lydia
The “Las Chicas del Río” (The Young Girls from the River) is a Credituyo group in its fourth cycle. The group has that name because a stream goes by the place in the east part of the city of Monterrey where they hold their weekly meetings; it has six members.

Erika is one of the group members. She’s 27 years old, married and has no children yet. During the day Erika works as a helper in a laundry and in the evenings she, her husband and her mother run a food stand in their neighborhood. Erika and her family sell dinners like tacos, “gorditas” [stuffed corn griddle cakes], hamburgers, etc.

Erika wants the loan to replace the food stand they sell in because it’s a bit deteriorated and she also plans to stock up on ingredients to increase her sales. In the long run, Erika wants her business to grow and she plans to set herself up in a local near downtown.

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.
