Grupo La Unión Group
In this Group: Martha Alicia, Teresa , Jesús, Zenorina, Bruna, Briana
"Grupo la Union" is a new team made of up six enterprising people—five women and one man—who have joined together to work with Vision Fund (FRAC). The members live in a quiet community where the people are very nice. They chose the name because their goal is to remain united, especially during difficult periods.

The members of the group are Martha Alicia, Teresa, Jesús, Zenorina, Bruna, and Briana; they all work raising livestock.

Martha, who is 52 years old, has been married for 27 years to Adan, who works in the trade. Together, they have raised a family of three children, two of whom attend school.

Martha has worked raising pigs for one year. She learned this activity from her husband, who has always worked raising animals. She hopes to be able to buy five pigs with her loan, and hopes to have a successful business since she doesn't want to continue working in Mexico City, which she has been doing to help her husband cover household costs.

Martha says, "I would like to spend more time with my family, to take care of my children and not work so far away. However, the problem is the lack of feed for my pigs. It's very expensive, but if I don't buy it, the pigs begin to lose weight and then they won't want to give me a good price for them." For that reason, the loan will be a great help in buying the animals and enough feed to keep them in good condition.

The whole group is grateful for and happy with the loans granted.

Additional Information

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.
