Las Palomas Group
In this Group: Perfecta , Raquel , María Isabel , Cipriana Gabriela , Ángela , Celsa , José Luis
The Las Palomas group has seven cheerful, friendly and hard-working members, each of whom has their own business activity. Perfecta sells chicken, Raquel sells clothing, Maria Isabel sells cosmetics, Cipriana Gabriela sells food and provides a dressmaking service, Angela sells footwear, and Celsa and Jose Luis sell underwear. The group is located in a region where people grow sugarcane.

Perfecta tells us that her parents only sent her to school up to high school level and then taught her to work so that she could earn a living and provide for herself. She is the single mother of two children and has had to work hard as a saleswoman in order to provide for them. She currently sells chicken (in pieces) and cheese. She places her scales and her products on a table in front of her house. As she has been selling for a number of years, she doesn't have to go out to make her sales as her customers come to her. She also tells us that in her free time she weaves bags and blouses which she then sells to make a little extra money. What Perfecta likes most about her business is that she can take care of it without neglecting her children. At the same time, she is able to teach her children to work as they sometimes help her to serve her customers. Perfecta will invest this loan in buying chickens and cheese so that she can continue making her sales. In the future, she would like to continue building her house and ensure her children further their studies.

This group is grateful to Fundación Realidad for the support that they are providing through this loan.

Doña Perfecta platica que sus padres solo le dieron estudios hasta secundaria y después le enseñaron a trabajar para ganarse la vida y salir adelante. Ella es madre soltera de dos hijos y ha tenido que trabajar duro como comerciante para sacarlos adelante, ella actualmente realiza ventas de pollo destazado y queso en el corredor de su casa saca una mesa, su bascula y sus productos como ya tiene varios años vendiendo no tiene que salir a ofrecer sus clientes llegan a buscarla para hacerle el gasto (comprar), también nos platica que en su tiempo libre elabora bolsas tejidas y blusas las cuales vende posteriormente y gana un poco de dinero extra. Lo que mas le gusta a Doña Perfecta de su actividad es que la puede realizar sin desatender a su hijos y de paso los va enseñando a trabajar ya que le ayudan a despachar algunas veces. Ella invertirá este crédito en la compra de pollos y queso para continuar realizando sus ventas. Ella desea a futuro poder continuar con la construcción de su casa y darle mas estudios a sus hijos.

Este grupo agradece a la fundación por el apoyo que les da con este crédito.

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.
