“Barahunda” is the name of this group of 11 enterprising people. Each of them has an economic activity aimed at forging a better life for their families. They decided to name their group thus because it’s the name of the community where they live and the meaning of the word Barahunda is joy and festivity and they identify with it.

Martha is one of the members of said group. She relates that since she was very little she’s enjoyed working and for the last nine years she and her husband have been operating a small butcher shop in her mother-in-law’s house since it’s located alongside the highway and that helps to sell more. She sells twice a week on Thursdays and Sundays and one day before she goes out to sell her meat among her friends and neighbors. The day she butchers the pig she heads out on her motorcycle to make deliveries and whatever is left over she sells in her butcher shop. She also makes sausage, fried pork rinds and fried pork.

A VisionFund loan will help her to invest in the purchase of pigs to continue with her sales. In future she’d like to start raising pigs in order not to have to buy them anymore. She is very happy with her activity because throughout these years it’s provided her with employment and she’s been able to give her family better quality of life.

The other group members are:

María de Lourdes - perfume sales
Elia - furniture store
Alicia - natural products sales
Maricela - clothing sales
Víctor Luis - fish sales
Irais Elvira - raising pigs
Elizabeth - raising pigs
Perla - apartment rentals

Doña Martha es uno de los integrantes de dicho grupo,ella platica que desde muy pequeña le ha gustado trabajar y que desde hace mas de nueve años junto a su esposo ha establecido una pequeña carnicería en la casa de su suegra ya que esta se ubica a orilla de la carretera y ayuda a que se venda mas, ella realiza sus ventas dos veces por semana los jueves y domingos y un día antes sale a ofrecer su carne con sus amigos y vecinos y el día que alinea el cerdo sale en su moto hacer los entregos y lo que le sobra lo vende en su carnicería, ella ademas prepara longaniza, chicharrones y carnitas.

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.
