In this Group: Emma, Socorro, Lidia , Teodora Eufracia , Eduardo , Susana Alejandra , Hermenegildo , Natalia
This group I called Small Star, which is composed of 8 indigenous people originating from a town called Tetepec, Oaxaca. Here, the majority of the people speak mixteco and dress in petticoats and Oaxacan dresses.
One of the members of this group is Socorro who is 35 years old, and characterizes herself as being friendly, responsible, and hard-working.
Mrs. Soco, as she is known by the townspeople, prepares and sells Mexican dishes such as enchiladas, tomato enchiladas, quesadillas, thick tortillas with toppings, pastry turnovers with fillings, and fried tortillas with toppings.
She started her business with her husband, Amadeo’s, support. He helps her with necessities, attending clients, and financial support.
One of her favorite things she likes to do is prepare chicken tinga (chicken simmered in chipotle and onions), to top the fried tortillas, and most of all having her orders made on time to satisfy clients.
She says that one of the characteristics a person should have for this type of job is good hygiene and be energetic since waking up early is necessary to prepare the dishes and make tortillas.
One of the nicest things about her business is being able to count on Vision Found because with their support she will be able to buy more materials to prepare more Mexican meals.

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.
