Ejercito Mexicano (Flat) Group
In this Group: Yanet, Teresa, Elizabet, Genoveva
Elizabet is twenty-six and has only a junior high school education. She's married to Rafael, with whom she has two little children. She's a member of a group called "Ejercito Mexicano" [Mexican Army], made up of four people who decided to give it that name because it's the name of the street where they meet so it's easy to identify. The group is located in the community of Cerro Mojarra (La Capilla) where there are two sources of employment: fishing and growing sugar cane.

Elizabet says that she and her husband had some savings that they wanted invest in a business that would provide them more income in the future, so they decided to raise young sheep. They've been at it for about a year and their herd has been growing little by little.

They'll make their profit when they sell some of the sheep. Elizabet says that the business requires time and dedication because they have to pasture the sheep very early every morning. Later they have to water and corral them, which means they have to clean the corrals every day.

Elizabet is most happy because, thanks to the business, she'll be able to continue to send her kids to school in the future. A Vision Fund loan will help buy vaccines, antiparasitics, and food for their sheep.

She and her group are grateful for the support for their businesses have gotten from these loans.

Elizabet platica que ella junto con su esposo tenían algunos ahorros los cuales querían invertirle en un negocio que a futuro les diera mas ganancias así que se pusieron a platicar y decidieron invertirlo en la cría de borregos, ellos ya tiene un año realizando esta actividad y poco a poco su población de borregos va creciendo.
Ellos ven sus ganancias cuando realizan la venta de algunos de sus borregos, elizabet dice que su actividad requiere de tiempo y dedicación ya que todos los días saca a pastorear sus borregos desde muy temprano hay que llevarlos a tomar agua y después meterlos al corral, esto también implica realizar la limpieza a los corrales diario.

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.
