In this Group: Antonieta , Nelly , Felicitas , Mary Raquel , Liz Magali
Mary, 45, is a member of Reyna de los Ángeles Group. She lives with her partner and has a 21-year-old son who works and goes to school. Mary began with her business 20 years ago. Her husband left his job in a company so they could make a living working together. This is how they started making caps and various sports souvenirs.

Their main customers are people who go to stadiums. They sell their products themselves and make a living in sales. Mary's happy about her business, especially when sales are good.

With the loan she's going to buy fabric to continue making garments and she'll also buy sports polo shirts, which are in great demand among her customers.

Her biggest dream is to make a living sewing polo shirts. For now she's not doing it because it's a major investment, but she hopes to do it very soon.

Mary's grateful for her job, which allows her better finances for her household. She's also very grateful to the Kiva lenders, who allow her and her group to get their loan.

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.
