Las Estrellitas (Flat) Group
Update on Las Estrellitas (Flat) GroupIn a municipality of Mexico, Santa Teresa de Limas is celebrated with a party that almost everyone in the community attends. They set off fireworks, organize a football tournament, and, of course, there is a parade for the Saint on the main street.
The main activity in this region is agriculture. The inhabitants work growing sugar cane, rubber (where tree resin is obtained), nance and quality woods. It is a community with Christian roots, which is surprising seeing as how the women also work in the fields to support their spouses. It's for this reason that the savings group is called "Las Estrellitas". It is made up of five working women, each of whom has a productive economic activity.
Maribel sells handmade tortillas, Maricela sells chickens, Marina sells doughnuts, Margarita sells Berteware products and Isabel sells tacos.
Doña Isabel has worked for three years selling tacos on the weekends. With her earnings she has been able to support her spouse with their household expenses along with her daughters. She is a happy, friendly woman who decided to request another loan in order to buy meat, chiles, a taco grill, gas, vegetables and chairs, which she will use to sell steak tacos, sausage, etc. With her earnings she will cover her loan payments over time and seek out ways to expand the taqueria more. She mentioned that she also assists her spouse out in the field.
La actividad principal en este lugar es la agricultura: los habitantes se dedican a la siembra de caña, hule(de donde se obtiene resina de árbol), nanche y maderas preciosas. Es una comunidad de raíces cristianas, resulta sorprendente ver como las mujeres también trabajan en campo y apoyan a sus esposos, es por eso el nombre del grupo “Las Estrellitas” conformado por 5 mujeres trabajadoras teniendo cada una de ellas una actividad económica productiva.

Concurrent and Successive Loans
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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
