The group “Hanrrora Division” is located in the tranquil San Isidro Boxipe community. The day we visited the group their town was celebrating their biggest holiday for Saint Isidor. Some of the members of the group participated in the dance.
They chose the name of the group because there were already 41 members and a division was necessary and they chose to name it after their town. One portion was named Hanrrora and this group was named Hanrrora Division.
Mrs. Catalina is a member of the group and she tells us she has been working with the institution for lots of time now. She is 66 years old, widowed, and until recently lived alone since she got sick and one of her sons comes to look after her. Mrs. Catalina raises sheep for 30 years now. She decided to start the business alone since it is a common business in the community. She takes care of them, fattens them up so they grow a certain size, and sells them at a reasonable price.
One of the biggest difficulties is when her sheep get sick and die. She tells us that recently 5 have died and she is very sad since it is a hard hit loosing 5 at once. Recently she has fixed the corral she keeps them in to protect them better.
Mrs. Catalina’s goal is to have more sheep and is requesting the loan to buy 5 more and feed. She has always wanted to see her corral filled with both large and small sheep.
She comments that her income helps her buy more sheep and improve her life quality like buying things she needs such as shoes, clothes, food, and maintain the corn crops she has on the side. Her sons will help her pay back the loan since they work.
The group is formed by new members: Austreberta, Irma, Teresa, Juliana y María Eva. They will use the loan to buy sheep to raise and sell. Mrs. Eloisa, Aurora, Eva will buy feed, grass, and corn. Finally, Mrs. Lucia will buy chickens, turkeys, and sheep to raise. In the end, the members will invest in their businesses and they are all thankful with the loans since they are always a great help.

El grupo “Divicion Hanrrora” está ubicado en una comunidad llamada San Isidro Boxipe una comunidad muy tranquila, el día que vistamos al grupo estaba festejando la fiesta más grande de su pueblo que es el santo San Isidro, algunas integrantes del grupo participan en la danza de la comunidad.
El nombre del grupo lo eligieron ya que estaban en un grupo grande de 41 integrantes que tuvieron que dividir en dos por eso el nombre de División y Hanrrora por el lugar donde viven, una parte se quedo con el nombre de Hanrrora y este grupo se quedo con el nombre de División Hanrrora.
Doña Catalina una integrante del grupo nos cuenta que ella tiene mucho tiempo trabajando con la institución, ella tiene 66 años ya es una señora viuda hace poco vivía sola pero enfermo y uno de sus hijos se vino a vivir con ella para cuidarla, Doña Catalina se dedica a la cría y engorda de borregos desde hace 30 años la idea de iniciar la actividad le nació sola ya que en la comunidad la mayoría se dedica a la cría de borregos nos cuenta que los cuida mucho, les da de comer para que crezcan grandes y gordas para que a la hora de vender puedan pagárselos a un buen precio.
Una de las dificultades mas grandes es cuando sus borregos enferman y mueren nos cuenta que hace poco murieron 5 borregos estaba muy triste ya que fue una gran pérdida perder 5 borregos al mismo tiempo no es nada fácil, sin embargo comenta que hace poco le trato de arreglar el corral donde los tenia poniéndoles un alambrón que los resguarda mejor.
La meta que tiene Doña Catalina es llegar a tener masa barreritas es por eso que esta vez ha solicitado el crédito para comprar 5 borregos y un poco de alimento para sus borregos, siempre ha querido ver su corral lleno de borregos entre grandes y pequeños.
Nos comenta que sus ganancias le ayudan para seguir comprando mas borregos pero también ayudan mejorar su calidad de vida para comprarse cosas que necesita como zapateos, ropa, alimentación, también invierte una parte para sacer adelante sus terrenos que tiene que sembrar maíz. Y de los pagos con la institución le ayudan sus hijos que ya trabajan.
El grupo está conformado por otras nueve mujeres que son Austreberta, Irma, Teresa, Juliana y María Eva son señoras que invertirán su crédito comprando borregos para cría y engorda. Mientras que las señoras Eloisa, Aurora, Eva compraran alimento para sus borregos entre pastura, zacate, maíz y alimento para sus borregos. Finamente la señora Lucia comprara pollos, guajolotes y borregos para cría y engorda. En fin todas las integrantes invertirán en sus actividades pero todas están muy agradecidas con el crédito ya que siempre han sido de gran beneficio.

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.
