Familia Hesiquio Group
In this Group: Gilberto, Aurelia, Aurelia
Familia Hesiquio is a family and they chose this name because it’s the family’s last name. The group is made up of three members who live in a Mazahua community, known for having a very beautiful surrounding of trees. They meet in a place that can only be reached on foot. The most celebrated festival is on June 25 where they celebrate Santa Ana. Gilberto, who represents the group, tells us that his nickname is Beto. He is 57 years old and was a teacher, but now he is retired and has been married to Aurelia for 33 years. They formed a family with their children, of whom only one still lives with them. He is their dependent and attends school.

Beto is asking for a Kiva loan through Vision Fund in order to buy grocery goods to stock his store. He says that he started it 15 years ago because there was only one road to get to the other side of town and there were many people on it, so he decided to set up his store. “I started by setting up a table an some boxes to show my products, however over time I saw a need to buy new shelves and refrigerators to be able to sell cold cuts and also some cold soft drinks.”

After some time they closed the road and built a fence, which caused his sales to drop in Beto’s store. This is when he decided to buy another house in another part of the community, where his store is now located. Beto’s challenge is the competition, but this situation does not discourage him. It’s quite the opposite, so he is asking for a loan so he can buy more merchandise. He feels that if he has a bit of everything in his store, he will attract more customers. Beto’s dream is to have a well-stocked store. “I don’t like it when the customers leave with nothing in their hands and then shop at another establishment.” Aurelia will buy clothing and his daughter will invest in her shoe store.

Don Beto esta solicitando un crédito a KIVA y Vision Fund para comprar productos de abarrotes para abastecer su tienda cuenta que la inicio porque hace 15 años había una carretera el cual era la única para poder llegar al otro lado de la comunidad como pasaba mucha gente decidió poner su tiendita “Inicie solo poniendo una tablas y unas cajas para mostrar mis abarrotes sin embargo con el tiempo vi la necesidad de comprar anaqueles y refrigeradores nuevos para poder vender carnes frías pero también algunos refrescos fríos” Después de un buen tiempo cerraron la calle y construyeron una barda lo cual provoco las bajas ventas de la tienda de Don Beto fue como decidió comprar otra casa en otro lado pero en la misma comunidad es donde se encuentra ahora su tienda de abarrotes. La dificulta de Don Beto es la competencia pero esta situación no lo desalienta todo lo contrario por eso está solicitando su credito para comprar mas mercancía cree que si tiene de todo en su negocio la clientela aumentara. Porque el sueño de Don Beto es llegar a tener su tienda bien surtida “No me gusta que los clientes se regresen sin nada en las manos y lleguen a comprarle a otro establecimiento” Doña Aurelia invertirá su crédito en ropa y su hija Aurelia invertirá en su zapatería.

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.
