San Jose  Juan Group
In this Group: Ignacia , Luz Maria , Efigenia , Laura
This group is called "San Jose Juan" and consists of four hardworking indigenous women. They are originally from a small town called San Juan Cacahuatepec, which is better known as Cacahuate. One of the traditions of this community is "La Danza de Las Mascaritas" (The Dance of the Little Masks), which is performed on the date of the Carnival celebration.


One of the members of this group is Sra. Luz Maria. She is 30 years old and known as a cheerful, friendly, and respectful woman. Doña Luz is best known among her fellow group members for selling seafood, which she has done for four years. The seafood she sells includes tilapia, sea bass, snapper, and mussels. She also sells fillets and shrimp upon request. Luz is happily married to Sr. Jesús, a hardworking and friendly gentleman who grows corn and works as a bricklayer. They have a son named Jose Antonio, who she says is her motivation to work every day and get stronger. What she enjoys most about her business is being able to sell fish in neighboring towns and talking with the residents. This loan will enable her to buy more fish and shellfish so that she can sell in bulk and in smaller amounts. She is grateful to Fundación Realidad for giving her a hand when she needs it the most.


The other members are as follows:
• Laura sells shoes.
• Efigenia sells chickens.
• Ignacia sells food.
They are also grateful to Fundación Realidad for assisting them as they seek to live meaningful lives in an effort to help their families.

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.
