“Cañaveral” is the name of a group consisting of six cheerful, kind women. The group is located in the community of Palma Cuata that’s surrounded by sugarcane fields; its residents work in the fields.

Francisca, 45, went to elementary school and she’s married to Mariano who works as a day laborer. Since she did not have the opportunity to continue with her schooling her mother taught her how to do household chores and later on taught her to embroider and to knit. When she learned this activity she only made blouses for herself and knitted her own napkins but when she’d go out into the street women would admire her blouses and would ask where she’d bought them or had them made so she decided to start making her crafts to sell among her friends and neighbors thus earning a bit of money to help her husband with household expenses. She currently also sells soft-drinks from home and has requested this loan to buy thread, ribbon, fabric, needles, hooks, soles and soft-drinks to continue selling. She hopes to win over more customers so that her profits will increase and be able to have a better quality of life.

The other group members are:
Martha - shoe sales,
Noemi - corn mill,
Rubí - grocery sales,
Daniela - shoe sales,
Guadalupe - soft-drink sales.

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.
