Naxi Jen is the name of this communal group, that is made up of 8 women. In their community they speak the dialect Mazateco as well as Spanish. The name of their group means "Cerro de las Palmas" (Palm Hills). The principal source of work here is the growing and harvesting of sugar cane.

Ms. Dora is one of the group members and she finished secondary school. She is married and has four children who are all going to school (Jovanna, Victor, Angel, Manuel). She tells us that a few years ago she took a class where she learned to make bread and she began making small sales of donuts and churros. She likes this line of work a lot and she spends every day from the early morning to the end of the day making breads and taking them in her baskets to sell in her community.

A credit with VisionFund will help her to purchase a variety of flours, sugar, oil, yeast and salt so she can continue baking.

She hopes that with this loan she will continue improving her life so that her children have the opportunity to study for a profession career and improve their lives as well.

Adela who sells sweets
Liliana who sells jewelry

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.
