This group is called “El Mirador,” and is made up of ten humble indigenous working women, dedicated to different businesses.

They are originally from Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca and some of their art forms are wooden masks, machetes, wool knitting, and beaded blouses. There are a number of beaches there, the main one being the beach of Corralero.

Maria is one of the group’s members. She is 54 years old and is known for wanting to improve her and her family’s lives.

Ms. Mari, as she is known by her fellow group members, has been selling American clothing for a year and groceries for 14 months. What she enjoys most about her business is providing good customer service and above all giving them a nice smile.

Ms. Mari says that she likes living life very much and always being happy and working very much to grow her two small businesses.

She is happy because her businesses provide good earnings and in this way she can grow them, each day buying and selling her merchandise.

One of the things she doesn’t like about her grocery store is that sometimes she goes out to sell in the street and the store remains closed and she loses customers.

One of her dreams is to have a location where she can show her merchandise and serve people more comfortably.

She requested this loan to buy more American clothing, such as skirts, blouses, dresses, Shores pants, and shirts.

She is grateful to the foundation for supporting hardworking people with a desire to succeed.

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.
