El Amanecer Group
In this Group: Luz Elena , Arcenia , Daniela , Anayeli , Kenia , Laura
In a community of Oaxaca, the population is largely dependent on the sugar mill La Margarita, as this produces an average of 102,712 tons of sugar per harvest, and this production involves just over 2,400 people in the region. The St. Vincent de Paul parish celebrates its patron saint on July 16 when first communions take place, and on July 19 confirmations and Mass in honor of the patron saint are celebrated; there is dancing, singing, brass bands, and fireworks.

In this community, a solidarity group called “El Amanecer” [The Sunrise] was formed. The members say that the name of the group was chosen because the sunrise is beautiful in their region. Each member is dedicated to a different activity: Luz-internet service; Daniela-clothing sales; Anayeli-chicken sales; Kenia-sales of home items by catalog; Laura-sales of shoes by catalog; and Arcenia-beauty salon.

Arcenia studied to be a stylist and succeeded in establishing a unisex salon 11 years ago. At first she paid rent; now she has achieved one of her dreams and with the earnings that she has made during this time she saved enough money to build her own salon. Similarly, she paid for her children's education with the help of her husband. That's why she has applied for a loan to invest in the purchase of material to continue offering her services as a stylist (dyes, straightening irons, powders, scissors to sell , capes, gloves, hair wax). She says that her children and parents are her greatest motivation to succeed. She thanks Kiva and VisionFund Mexico for the support that she will receive.

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.
