La Huerta Group
In this Group: Angela, Reyna , Silvia , Alma Jazmin, Leonardo Juan , Jose Francisco, Petra
The “La Huerta” (The Orchard) group is located behind a market called “La Palma.” It’s a group whose members come from different places and meets in a house that’s still not completely finished but that’s where they have their meetings. When we asked the group why it was called La Huerta, they answered laughing: “We don’t even have an orchard anymore but we used to meet in a huge orchard where there was lots of fruit like apples, pears, figs, lemons, etc. But now look where we are.” The members of the group are very grateful and happy with VisionFund (FRAC) and with Kiva because they will be able to invest in their activities. For example: Doña Reyna will buy bedspreads and blankets, Doña Silvia and Alma Jazmín will buy crafts, José will buy jewelry, Ángela will invest in painting napkins and finally, Don Leonardo will buy belts but also will invest in his sheep.

Doña Petra who also belongs to the group tells us that she’s 46-years-old and a widow with two dependents still, a girl and boy; the girl is still attending secondary school and the boy is no longer in school.

Doña Petra tells us that she works making crafts like sashes and napkins. Petra learned how to make these crafts from her mother. She tells us that in order to make the sashes she needs yarn. She buys the entire skein and then unravels the individual threads and then embroiders again so that the sash will end up embroidered; in addition to the sashes she also does napkins.

Petra tells us that the only difficulty she has is being able to buy her supplies sometimes which is why she’s asking for this loan to buy yarn and embroidery fabric. The loan will be very beneficial because she will be able to stock up for a good period of time. Petra says that what she likes best is to make them so her customers will be satisfied with what she does. Petra always sells outside the gates but would like it if her business grew gradually so as not to need to come all the way to San Felipe to sell any longer.

Petra is very grateful for the loan because her profits will be of much use to her to cover household expenses and her children’s schooling.

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.
