This group is called Barrio Grande (Big Neighborhood) and is formed by 17 hard-working indigenous women who speak the Mixteco language. They work in different economic activities, and they want to improve their businesses and their lives. They are from Santiago Jamiltepec, Oaxaca. In Mixteco, Jamiltepec means "hunting" and in Náhuatl it means "adobe hill." Some of their traditions are the Holy Week, the Holy Sacrament of the Virgin of Guadalupe, the Child of the Catechism, and the Virgin of Carmen.

One of the members of this group is Señora Alma Delia, who is 21 years old. She is known for being a quiet and kind person. She is happily married to Señor Roberto, with whom she has two children, Ángel David and a recently born baby. Her business, which she began six years ago, is selling tamales and bread. The tamales she makes are of chicken, pork, clams, and chipiles (a leafy vegetable). She sells them in the neighborhoods close to her community and goes from house to house every day. What she likes most about her work is that it gives her good earnings, and when there are leftover tamales, she heats them and sells them at another time, so that she doesn't lose what she invests. Alma Delia is requesting this loan to buy more ingredients to prepare tamales: green chiles, dried chiles, garlic, onion, chicken, pork, banana leaves, and lard. She is very thankful to the Vision Fund since with its support and her earnings, her life and business have improved.

The other members of the group are: Albina, who sells tortillas; Juliana, who sells handicrafts; Martina, who sells Mexican snacks; Elvira, who sells Mexican snacks; Ana Magali, who sells chickens; Luz Martina, who sells chickens; Catalina, who sells chickens; Belem, who sells chickens; Flora, who sells perfume; Avelina, who sells footwear; Ynocencia, who sells food; Maria, who sells fruits and vegetables; Iris Isaura, who sells Mexican snacks; Francisca, who sells tortillas; Berenice, who sells Mexican snacks; and José, who sells bread. They give thanks to the organization for the support that it has given to everyone with the desire to overcome.

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.
