La Virgen De Guadalupe Group
In this Group: Laura, Eugenia, Maria Manuela, Eulalia, Petra
La Virgen de Guadalupe is the name of this group, which is made up of five members. Each of them has their own business: Laura has a transport service, Eugenia sells chickens, Maria Manuela sells tacos, Eulalia sells tortillas, and Petra sells home goods. They decided to give this name to their group because there is a beautiful image of the Virgin in the house where they meet. This group is located in the community of Vicente Camalote, where the main source of employment is a sugar production company called "La Margarita."

Eugenia is 35 years old. She only studied in primary school, and she is married to Oscar, with whom she has four children. She says that she has worked to help her husband with their home expenses since she was fourteen, because the financial situation is worse every day and there is not enough money. Eugenia sells sliced chicken every morning.

What she most likes about her business is that she feels a bit independent, because she earns her own money and she has made good clients and friends over these years.

She says that her work begins very early, because she has to wake up at dawn to kill the chickens and season them in order to sell them later on. She also tells us that there are certain times when sales are good. Now, for example, it is the sugarcane harvest season and the companies are working to produce sugar. Therefore, there is work and people have a bit more money.

This loan from Vision Fund will help her to buy chickens to continue with her sales.

She hopes to offer her family a better quality of life with her income and to grow her business day by day. She says, "Thank you for the support that you give us. This is a new opportunity for success."

La Virgen de Guadalupe es el nombre de un grupo integrado por 5 personas cada una de ellas con una actividad económica: Laura brinda servicio de transporte, Eugenia venta de pollo, Maria Manuela venta de tacos, Eulalia venta de tortillas y Petra artículos par el hogar. Ellas decidieron dar este nombre a su grupo ya que en la casa que se reunen hay una imagen muy bella de la virgen. Este grupo esta ubicado en la comunidad de Vicente Camalote, en el cual la principal fuente de empleo la brinda un Ingenio productor de azúcar
llamado "La Margarita".

Doña Eugenia tiene la edad de 35 años,solo estudio la primaria y esta casada con el señor Oscar con el cual tiene 4 hijos. Ella platica que desde hace 14 años, ella trabaja para ayudar a su esposo con los gastos del hogar ya que cada dia la situcacion economica esta mas dificil y el dinero no rinde, doña Eugenia realiza venta de pollo destazado todos los dias por las mañanas.

Lo que mas le gusta de su negocio es que se siente un poco independiente ya que gana su propio dinero y ha hecho buenas clientas, amigos con el paso de estos años.

Ella dice que su trabajo inicio desde muy temprano ya que tiene que madrugar para matar los pollos y aliñarlos para posteriormente ponerlos a la venta, también nos dice que hay tiempos donde se vende bien que es ahorita esta zafra (cuando los ingenios trabajan en la producción de azúcar) ya que hay trabajo y la gente tiene un poco mas de dinero.
Un préstamo de Vision Fund le ayudara a comprar pollos para continuar con sus ventas.
Ella espera poder brindar a su familia una mejor calidad de vida con sus ganancias y hacer crecer su negocio día a día. Ella dijo
"Gracias por el apoyo que nos dan y a nosotras y tambien es una nueva oportunidad de salir adelante"

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.
