This group is called Las Dos Palmitas (the Two Palm Trees) and is made up of eleven indigenous women from Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca, land of indigenous people who speak Mixtec.

One of the members is Julia, fifty-two, a cheerful woman. She says that she has sold clothing, fish, cheese and bread for the past five years. She also feels very happy with her businesses since they give her good earnings and thanks to them, she has been able to improve her standard of living. She tells us that in the future she would like to sell Mexican snacks since she considers it a good business from which she is able to receive a high income easily because she can sell the food at night from her house. Julia mentions that of the products she sells, the best is fish, and fortunately, that gives her the greatest earnings. For her selling clothing is the biggest challenge since most of her customers buy on credit and she suffers losses at the end because many don’t pay. Julia is considered to be a special person because she likes to improve herself and her quality of life with her effort and dedication. She is requesting a loan to buy more ingredients to make the Mexican snacks: tomatoes, green chiles, vegetables, cold cuts, cheese, Oaxacan cheese, sausage and chicken.

Este grupo se llama Las Dos Palmitas y está conformado por once mujeres indígenas originarias de la ciudad de Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca, tierra de gente indígena que habla el idioma mixteco.

Una de las integrantes de este grupo es la señora Julia de cincuenta y dos años de edad, quien se caracteriza por ser una señora amable. Doña Julia dice que se dedica a la venta de ropa, pescado, queso y pan desde hace cinco años; además, se siente muy feliz con sus negocios ya que todos le dejan buenas ganancias y gracias a ellos, ha podido mejorar su calidad de vida. Dice que más adelante le gustaría vender antojitos mexicanos ya que considera que es un negocio donde podría obtener buenos ingresos y de una manera sencilla ya que pretende vender la comida por las noches y en su casa. Doña Julia menciona que de sus productos, el que mejor se vende es el pescado y, afortunadamente es donde obtiene mejores ganancias. Para ella, lo que representa un mayor reto es la venta de ropa, ya que la mayoría de sus clientes le piden prestado y eso hace que ella tenga perdidas pues al final, muchos clientes no pagan. Doña Julia se considera una persona especial por que le gusta superarse y mejorar su calidad de vida a base de esfuerzo y dedicación. Pidió el crédito para comprar más ingredientes para la elaboración de antojitos mexicanos: jitomate, chile verde, verdura, carnes frias, queso, quesillo, chorizo y pollo.

Las otras integrantes del grupo son:

Nayeli- se dedica a la venta de comida.
María Elena- se dedica a la venta de perfumes.

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.
