Haana Group
In this Group: Martin, Verónica , Bertha Laura , Adriana, Maria De La Luz, Pablo , Maria Alin
The Haana Group is made up of 7 members who are all from the same municipality and know each other very well and share a very strong friendship. This group has participated in various loan cycles at the institution. The group's name was chosen by one of the group's members, Adriana, who called it "Haana" because that is the name of one of her daughters. Adriana was one of the founding members of the group.

Group member Vero is 33 years old and has been married to Victor Manuel for 12 years. Together they have formed a family in which they have two children, one of which is studying. Vero has had a taco restaurant called "Fernanda" for the last two years. She says, "we started the taco restaurant because my father-in-law made a living selling head tacos, and my husband was always helping and that's how he learned to make tacos."

Vero says that they used to have a grocery store, but they had to close it because they did not earn as much income as before and it was difficult to recoup their losses. But she also says, "Every weekend we sold tacos outside of the grocery store and we sold a lot." That was the motivation for starting the taco stand, Vero notes, "Fortunately, we have a lot of work; in the mornings we serve breakfast, lunch, and the evening we serve dinner." The only difficulty is that this time of year is Lent, when red meat isn't eaten and sales drop. But she knows that the season is temporary and that sales will be better soon. Vero dreams that one day she will have employees that tend the business because it's a lot of work when all her customers arrive at the same time.
The other members of the group have dreams as well, Martin will invest in the sale of clothes, Bertha will invest in her sheep, Adriana will buy cattle, Pablo will invest in dental services, Maria de la Luz will buy bedding, and Maria Alin will invest in clothes and shoes. They are all very happy and thank the institution for the credit given them, which has been a great help in improving their businesses and families.

El grupo Haana está compuesto por siete integrantes todas son personas del mismo municipio, se conocen muy bien, llevan una muy buena amistad es un grupo que lleva varios ciclos solicitando crédito a la institución. El nombre del grupo lo eligió Adriana una de las integrantes del grupo y lo puso porque una de sus hijas se llama precisamente “Haana”, además Adriana fue una de las personas que inicio el grupo.

Vero quien quedo como representante del grupo platica que tiene 33 años de edad está casada con el señor Victor Manuel desde hace 12 años juntos han formado una familia con dos niños de los cuales solo uno estudia. Vero tiene una taquería la cual tiene ya 2 años. Vero argumentó “Iniciamos la taquería porque mi suegro siempre se dedicó a vender tacos de cabeza, mi esposo siempre lo estuvo apoyando y fue como aprendió a preparar los tacos” Vero cuenta que anteriormente tenían una tienda de abarrotes pero tuvieron que cerrarla ya que no obtenían ganancias, pero también comenta "Todos los fines de semana vendian tacos afuera de la tienda de abarrotes y vendiamos muy bien" Fue como tambien se vieron motivados a iniciar con su taqueria Vero platica "Afortunadamente tenemos mucho trabajo en las mañanas que son los desayunos, almuerzos y en la tarde que son las comidas" Su unica dificultad es en este tiempo de cuaresma donde no se come carne roja y las ventas han bajado mucho. Pero sabe que esta temporada solo es pasajera y podra sacar adelante su negocio en otras epocas. Vero sueña que algun dia ella tenga empleados que atiendan el negocio porque es mucho trabajo ahora que estan iniciando todos los comensales llegan a la misma hora.
Asi como Vero tiene sueños tambien los otros integrantes del grupo como Don Martin invertira en la venta de ropa, Bertha invertira en sus borregos, Adriana comprara una res, Pablo invertira en servicio dental, Maria de la Luz invertira en Colchas y Maria Alin invertira en Ropa y zapatos. Todos ellos estan muy contentos y agradecidos con la institucion por el credito otorgado ya que para ellos ha sido de gran ayuda para sacar adelante a su negocio y familia.

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.
