Manita De Angel Group
In this Group: Ana Elizabeth, Alicia, Felisa, Irene, Maria Josefina, Ma Celedonia, Janet, Rosalba
This group is made up of eight members. All of them are women who know each other very well. Their great friendship is what distinguishes them. They have been getting loans from VisionFund for two cycles. They live in a Mazahua community and still conserve their regional traditions. The most important crop there is corn. In fact, during the month of September, the people in the area can finally enjoy the ears of corn after several months of cultivation. The members chose the name Manita de Ángel because at the group representative's house there is a plant with that name. Alicia is 39 years old. She has been married for 22 years to Fabián who is a merchant. Together they have created a family with three children who are in school. Alicia sells accessory products such as beads, pins, headbands, antennas, threads, batteries, etc. She has been doing this for 22 years. Alicia remarked “I started selling from a small tray, walking around the plazas. I started the initiative to sell myself." This time, with the loan, Alicia will buy more merchandise since it is important to have products to offer. Alicia and her husband have difficulty selling their merchandise since they weren't allowed to set up in the plazas. but they worked really hard and were able to get a stable spot in the street market. Nonetheless, they also go out to sell in other places to cover a wider area and have more profit. Alicia's goal is to be able to have another stable spot, more than anything to grow her business. Her earnings will be a big help to pay for her children's education expenses. They really want to be able to go to college and improve their quality of life. The members of the group are Ana Elizabeth and Janet. They are going to use their loans to invest in clothes. Felisa, Celedonia, Josefina and Rosalba will use it to invest in cleaning supplies, and Irene will invest in sheep and chickens. They are very grateful to Kiva and Vision Fund for the loan. It will be a big help to grow their businesses, which will allow them to improve their and their families' quality of life.

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.
