Cerro Bala Group
In this Group: Antonia, Tomasa , Emilia, Petra, Natividad, Juan, Leobardo , Zoila , Soledad , Epifania , Juana
This group is called Cerro Bala and has 11 members. They are all humble, indigenous people who want to improve their quality of life and provide their families with better conditions. The group’s members are from San Juan Jicayan, where the majority of the population works in corn growing and livestock farming.


One of the group’s members is Soledad, who is a friendly, hard-working and humble woman who wants to get ahead in life. Sole, as she is known, bakes and sells bread, and has done so for the past 20 years. She delivers bread for weddings and quinceañeras (galas for girls' 15th birthdays), and the people in her area think she makes the best bread in the region. She has asked for this loan to buy more products to bake bread, such as flour, eggs, milk, yeast, baking powder, lard and butter.

Sole is happily married to Perfecto. They have three children whom she loves very much, and sometimes they help her to bake the bread. She would like to thank the foundation for the help that it has given her so that her business can grow every day.


The group’s other members are:

Antonia - she sells traditional corn-based Mexican dishes.
Tomasa - she sells bricks.
Emilia - she sells chickens.
Petra - she sells chickens.
Natividad- she sells chickens.
Juan - he sells bricks.
Leobardo - he sells bricks.
Zoila - she sells chickens.
Epifania- she sells bread.
Juana - she sells traditional corn-based Mexican dishes.


They would all like to thank the foundation for helping hard-working, indigenous people.

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.
