Amigas Progresando (Friends Progressing) is the name of this group. It has this name because all of the women are friends and they progress. They are located in the Progreso de Obregón community in the state of Hidalgo, México. The group is comprised of ten members. This is the first time they have had a loan together.

Idania Aurora E. Díaz is the president of the group. She is 30, and she went to school until the third year of pre-university. She does not have children. She sells meat, a business she started 15 years ago. She is asking for a loan to buy animals for her butcher shop. Her customers think she is a responsible person because she sells good meat at fair prices.

María Isabel González García is another member of this group. She is 47, and she has an elementary school education. She has four daughters (two are 24, one is 26, and the other is 30). She has been working as a seamstress for ten years. She is asking for a loan to buy fabric. Her customers seek her out because she is a responsible woman and her sewing has the guarantee of being good quality. As she is asking for this loan, she feels capable of paying the loan, and she has a great desire to work. She wants this loan to buy material to make uniforms for the school cycle that is coming. She wants to have her business stocked in order to give her customers good, quality service. She also hopes to use her earnings to paint her house and to be able to buy a dining room.

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.
