Sonrisa (Smile) is a group comprised of eight members: Nisha, who sells food, Estela sells food, Lorena sells clothing, Jesika sells soft drinks, Minerva has a printing business, Grissel sells groceries, Heladio sells tacos and Guadalupe sells shoes. They decided to give their group this name because they are very cheerful and smiling. The group is located in the community of Acatlan de Perez Figueroa, which is in the cane region.

Minerva only has a middle school education and is married to Jaime. They have a son, and for over 15 years have been running a printing business in the center of town where they print signage on t-shirts, mugs, bags, canvas, uniforms, flyers and invitations. She says that over the years they have acquired good customers thanks to their good work. So their customers always return and even recommend their services. She is happy because hers is a family business and in the future she hopes her son will also learn the trade. A loan from VisionFund will give Minerva the opportunity to buy inks, mugs, t-shirts, paper and bags; and to pay for equipment maintenance, since it is always in use.

Minerva wants to continue prospering in her business in order to give her son a better quality of life.

The Sonrisa Group is grateful for the support received by way of these loans.

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.
