Los Aguacates De Donaciano Group
In this Group: Josefina, Delfina, Minerva, Simona, Olivia
Minerva is 30 years old and is a part of the Avocadoes of Donaciano she says they named the communal bank that way because the biggest source of work in the area is growing avocadoes. She is originally from an area called Donaciano Ojeda where they still dress and speak the Mazahua language. Mrs. Minerva has mades and sold artisanal goods in ocoshal (woven pine fibers collected from the forest) for some 10 years. She also has an avocado orchard which has some 150 trees. Mrs. Minerva is married to Mr. Jorge and they have 4 children, the oldest is Alicia, she is 13 and in high school, Jorge is 10 and in primary school, Yareli is 4 years old and the youngest is 1 year old. She says that when it is harvest season the buyers go to her neighborhood to buy by the ton and when she doesn’t have many sales she goes to the local central market called Zitacuaro where she sells the avocadoes by the basket and earns a bit more. Mrs. Minerva needs the loan to buy merchandize to make sure she has a good harvest and to buy organic manure, insecticides and fertilizers to have more quality fruit. She says that thanks to the loan she will improve her orchard’s condition since it is her main source of income and gets the best earnings for her children’s education.

The other 4 members of this communal bank are Josefina, Delfina, Simona and Olivia. They need the loan to buy manure, fertilizers for the avocado crops and materials to make the ocoshal artisanal pieces.

Minerva tiene 30 años de edad y es parte del grupo de Los Aguacates de Donaciano, dice que le pusieron ese nombre porque la principal fuente de empleo de todas es el cultivo de aguacate. Ella es originaria de una localidad llamada Donaciano Ojeda donde todavía visten y hablan el idioma mazahua. Doña Minerva se dedica a la elaboración y venta de artesanías en ocoshal desde hace 10 años y también al cultivo de aguacate ya que tiene un huerto con más de 150 árboles de este fruto. Ella está casada con el señor Jorge y tienen 4 niños la mayor llamada Alicia de 13 años estudiante de secundaria, Jorge de 10 años el estudia la primaria, Yareli de 4 años y una niña de 1 año. Platica que cuando es temporada de cosecha de aguacates van los compradores hasta su comunidad a comprar por toneladas y cuando no tienen casi ventas en su localidad sale a la central de abastos de una población llamada Zitacuaro, donde vende los aguacates por cubetas ya que así le ganan un poco más. Dice que está pidiendo un crédito a la financiera para la compra de insumos para el buen cultivo de sus árboles como abonos orgánicos, insecticidas y fertilizantes para que den fruto de mejor calidad. Dice que gracias al crédito mejorara las condiciones de su huerto ya que es su principal empleo de dónde saca mejores ganancias para la educación de sus hijos.

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.
