Los Carpinteros Group
In this Group: Raquel, Dionicio Francisco , Santiago Alvaro , Elias
The four members of this group call themselves Los Carpinteros ("The Carpenters). They are smart, regular people from the city of Pinotepa Nacional in Oaxaca. The town is famous for the traditional wooden masks that are made here. The masks, painted in brilliant colors, represent various animals.
One of the members, Sr. Dionicio Francisco, 63, operates a furniture-making business. He makes some furniture to order and some for local wholesalers.
Don Nicho, as he's know to people here, tells us that he bought his business when he came to Pinotepa from a small town called El Santo. He used his savings to buy a wood-working shop where he now makes furniture.
We were struck by the attention that Don Nicho pays his customers, his creativity, his patience and his talent for design.
He says that support from Vision Fund will allow him to buy the materials--wood, chisels, sandpaper, nails, etc.--that he needs to make furniture.
The other members of the group are:
Raquel who operates a business making and selling furniture.
Santiago Alvaro who operates a business making and selling furniture.
Elias who operates a business making and selling furniture.
They are grateful to the foundation for helping them because they are confident in their abilities and only need a little help to grow.

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.
