Los Macuiles Group
In this Group: Blanca , Alma Delia , Adalberta, Beatriz , Maria , Martina , Marisol
This group of seven cheerful, enterprising women is called “Los Macuites.” They decided to join together because they have things in common: they live in the community of Los Macuites, they like commerce and they’ve known each other for many years.

Alma Delia is one of the women that make up said group. She’s 49 years of age and only studied a commercial career. She relates that she’s liked to work since she was little but what she liked the most was being a merchant because this gave her the opportunity of a job, she earned her own money and she could help pay for her schooling.

She’s been working in commerce for 38 years. She relates that she started out selling pieces of fabric and then she was invited to sell Avon products. She currently sells clothes and costume jewelry. She relates that when she stocks up on products she doesn’t even have to go out to sell them because customers come to her house to see her goods because she’s well-known in the community because of her sales.

Alma Delia is very proud of her activity because thanks to it she’s moved her family forward. In addition, she’s building a locale at home where she plans to set up a grocery store.

A VisiónFund loan will help her invest in a variety of costume jewelry, shirts, t-shirts, shorts, dresses, skirts, blouses, pants and underwear to continue with her sales. Her short-term goal is to finish building the locale so she can start selling groceries.

The other group members are:

Blanca-shoe sales
Adalberta-meat sales
Beatriz-sugarcane growing
María-soft-drinks sales
Martina-fruit and vegetable sales
María-shoe sales

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.
