San Judas is the name of this group, made up of eight very friendly, joyful, and determined people who have their own businesses and a common goal: to give their families a better quality of life. This group is located in Tierra Blanca, Veracruz, where the main economic activities are trade and ranching. The members of this group and their businesses are as follows: Luiz Yovany sells footwear, Nicolasa sells tacos, Flora sells food, Miriam sells cosmetics, Ligia sells handbags, Melvi Anahi sells cosmetics, Silvia sells natural products, and Abraham sells meat.

Flora, 50, studied through secondary school and is single. She tells us that she has worked selling Mexican corn-based dishes for more than four years. She started working in her own business because she wanted to work to move forward. Since she knows how to cook well, she decided to start selling food and her business took off. Today, she continues with her business. She sells from her home on weekends (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) in the evening. Sometimes she sells food on other occasions and earns some extra money. "I like to be on the move. You shouldn't cling to what you have. You must search for it because money doesn't come in on its own." A loan from Vision Fund will help her to buy tortillas, beans, meat, peppers, avocado, cheese, cream, tomatoes, onions, oil, potatoes, bananas, corn, gas, and soft drinks to make what she sells. She wants her business to keep growing and gain more customers so that her profits increase.

This group is thankful for the help provided by these loans.

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.
