In this Group: Francisca, Concepcion , Minerva, Inés, Felipa , Marcelina, Cecilia
The group San Isidro Labrador is made up of 7 women, each one of whom carries out a different economic activity with the goal of giving her family a better quality of life. The group is located in a community where the main source of income is in agriculture, planting and harvesting sugar cane.

Francisca is one of the members of this group, and she says that for more than 7 years she has sold pork. She makes her sales once a week, and on the day before the sale she goes house to house with her friends and neighbors to offer them the meat and take orders. The next day she lines up the pork and goes out to deliver the meat. She says that she takes full advantages of the pigs, not only selling the meat but also making carnitas, pork rinds, tacos and enchilada meat that helps her to earn more money.

A loan from VisionFund will give her the opportunity to buy more pigs to continue her sales. She hopes that her business continues to make progress since she has 3 children and she wants to pay for their studies and improve their quality of life. She and her colleagues are thankful for the opportunity to get a loan since it will allow them to invest in their businesses and make them move forward.

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.
