La Ilución [Hope] Communal Bank has 15 members. They chose this name for their group because they hope their businesses will prosper with this loan and they can give their families a better quality of life. This group is located in Tierra Blanca, known for its very hot summers and for commerce and ranching, its main economic activities.

The members of the group are Eunice, shoe sales; Filiberto, taxi service; María Teresa, cosmetics sales; Claudia Estela, fruit and vegetable sales; Rosa, clothing sales; Guadalupe, pastry making; Gladis, costume jewelry sales; Rebeca, clothing sales; Santa, costume jewelry sales; María Lorenza, perfume sales; Adela, shoe sales; Cristián, clothing sales; Guillermina, butcher shop; María de Jesús, clothing sales; and Reyna, clothing sales.

Guadalupe, or Lupe as she's known to her friends, is 30 years old. She only went to high school. She's married to Jorge, a teacher. They have two children who attend elementary school, Luis Roberto, 10, and Alex, 7.

Lupe says she has earned a living making pastry and baking for several years now. She decided to start this work because she has always liked to cook and, especially, make desserts. Her taste for this activity came from her need to make healthy food for her children. Then she thought selling desserts and making pastry would be a good way to earn her own money.

Little by little she has attracted good customers. She sells door-to-door and on order. One day she goes out to offer her products and the next day she makes the pastries to deliver. She also makes sandwiches for parties. Lupe says she has more sales in the cold weather, but she's always looking for ways to keep her sales stable. In the hot weather gelatin sells very well.

What she likes most about her job in addition to earning her own money is that making pastry reflects the best of what she is, and she puts a lot of love and effort into each sandwich or pastry she makes.

A loan from Kiva and VisionFund will help her buy flour, sugar, eggs, gelatin, disposable supplies, Chantilly cream, powdered sugar, and containers.

In the future she plans to study to be a chef, expand her business, set herself up in a place, and provide banquet services with her children to make her job a family business.

She's grateful for the support of VisionFund because she has been able to make progress with her business and improve her quality of life with these loans.

Lupe platica que se dedica a la repostería y panadería desde hace ya algunos años. Ella decidió iniciar con esta actividad porque siempre le ha gustado cocinar pero más en particular la elaboración de postres. Su gusto por esta actividad surgió de la necesidad que sentía por preparar a sus hijos comida saludable, después pensó que sería una buena manera de ganar su propio dinero vendiendo postres y realizando pasteles.

Ella poco a poco ha ganado buenas clientes, sus formas de venta es casa por casa y por pedidos. Un día antes sale a ofrecer y al día siguiente que prepara sus postres sale a entregar. También se encarga de hacer bocadillos para fiestas.

Lupe platica que en tiempos de frio tiene más ventas pero siempre busca la manera de que sus ventas se mantengan y en tiempo de calor elaborar Gelatinas que se venden muy bien.

Lo que más le gusta de su actividad además de ganar su propio dinero es que en la repostería refleja lo mejor de ella y le pone mucho amor y dedicación a cada bocadillo o postre que prepara.

Un crédito de Kiva y VisionFund le ayudara a comprar harina, azúcar, huevos, gelatinas, desechables, chantillí, azúcar glass y recipientes.

A futuro tiene planeado estudiar la carrera de chef y hacer su negocio más grande, establecerse en un local y con la ayuda de sus hijos brindar al servicio de banquetes y hacer de su actividad un negocio familiar.

Ella agradece el apoyo de VisionFund ya que con estos préstamos ha podido hacer progresar su negocio y mejorar su calidad de vida.



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.
