Las Adas Del Centro Group
In this Group: Graciela , Francisca , Antonia , Sonia
The Las Adas del Centro communal bank is comprised of four hard-working women from Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca. One of the typical dishes of this city is iguana soup.

Antonia, age 46, is one of the members of the group. She sells typical Mexican snacks like enchiladas verdes, tostadas, quesadillas, “sopes” (thick tortillas with vegetable and meat toppings), and chicken empanadas.

Antonia tells us that at night she gets out her tables and chairs to sell her snacks outside of her house. She also provides home service. She says that she previously sold frozen pops and tamales at her house. Thanks to God, she got good income, and with the passage of time she decided to sell Mexican snacks at night.,

One of the nicest things that has happened is continuing in her business and having help from Vision Fund. With their support she will be able to buy more ingredients like green chili, dried chili, tomatoes, onions, garlic, cheese, “quesillo” (fresh, soft cheese), and chicken.

The other members are:
Graciela – Sells Mexican snacks
Francisca – Sells handicrafts
Sonia – Sells shoes by catalog

They give their thanks to the Fundación Realidad for helping them be able to expand their businesses.

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.
