In this Group: Cecilia , Maria Isabel , Jose Antonio , Adriana, Felipa , Claudia , Evarista
Cecilia’s a member of a group called “La Unidad” located in the community of Tembladeras El Castillo where there are many sugarcane fields; it’s just a few minutes away from the La Margarita farming estate in the state of Oaxaca.

Cecilia is 45-years-old and a single mother of two children. Her daughter, Olga, is 20-years-old and married and her son, Jerry, is 12-years-old and attends secondary school. Cecilia has a business selling tacos, hamburgers and hot-dogs. She cooks the food at midday and at night sets up a food stand at home so her customers can come by to enjoy her delicious food. Cecilia started this business some years ago as a way of providing better quality of life for her family and to provide education for her children. The business has been sufficiently successful to cover her basic needs.

Cecilia’s requesting a loan to buy sausages, bread, onion, garlic, tomatoes, mayonnaise, mustard, meat, tortillas, margarine and gas. She hopes that by investing in inventory her business will be successful and her income will increase in order in future to provide her son with the opportunity of studying a career.

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.
