* not pictured
This group is called “Tututepec San Pedro” and it’s composed of twelve indigenous women who speak the Mixteco language. They are from a small town called Tututepec San Pedro where one of the local customs is “Mayordomía” [folk festival where an individual or a couple take on the responsibility of organizing the community festivities]. One of the group members is Alma Eva, 35.

Doña Alma, as she’s better known by her neighbors, says that she’s worked selling "masa" [corn dough for making tortillas, tamales, etc.] and providing mill services for two years. She also works cutting hair. She styles hair at home. She decided to have this business to earn extra money for emergencies.

She says that she started her business thanks to her husband, Jorge, who before they got married had a grocery store and used profits from the store and help from the Fundación to be able to buy her mill to sell masa.

What she likes best about her business is treating her customers with kindness and always being active because she has to tend to both businesses and above all also care for her children, Luís Antonio and Betzabé.

One of her greatest joys is being able to rely on Fundación Realidad because with its support she will be able to buy combs, shampoo, a hair clipper and scissors.

She thanks Fundación Realidad for helping working women.

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.
