This group is called "Las Flores Rosas" [The Pink Flowers] and is made up of 13 members who are hard working and humble people, with the desire to get ahead and grow their businesses.

They are originally from Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca. The artisanal crafts that are most common from this area include toys and other items from wood, machetes, hammocks (made from wool and cotton), brightly painted wooden masks that represent different animals and blouses embroidered with beads.

One of the group members is Macedonia, better known as Marce. She is 38 years old and is known for being a friendly, hard working and humble woman. She sells tamales (a traditional food made with corn dough, filled with meat and sauce and wrapped in a plantain leaf or corn husk), chicharrones (fried pig skin) and popsicles, which she has been doing for the past 10 years. She told us that she is a single mother and she has 5 children: Araceli, Eduardo, Damaris, Yessenia and Beltsy. Only Damaris and Eduardo are supported by her; her other children live with her but are already married. Marce is very happy because her children help her with her business. The thing she likes best is making tamales, and going out in the streets of her community to sell. She said that since she was young she has enjoyed selling things, managing her time and her money, but that now it is different because she is working to be able to give a better life to her children and above all to give them a better education. She hopes that her children will be proud of her. She has requested a loan to be able to buy more ingredients to make tamales, like green peppers, tomatoes, chicken, pork, plantain leaves, lard, salt, and corn to make the dough.

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.
