This group is called Teacalco, and it is located in the state of Morelos. The group is comprised of ten members.

Delia C. is the president of the group. She is 33 years old, and she has been selling soft drinks for two years.

Reyna G. is married, and she produces and sells milk and its derivatives. She also sells meat. Thirty-eight years ago she and her husband had some cows. They started selling milk in the town. After one day they were asked to deliver milk to the technical school their son attended.

Upon seeing that this was not enough money, she mentioned it to her son. Her son asked one of his teachers to teach him how to make Oaxaca cheese. The teacher not only taught him, but his parents as well. They learned very quickly, and they now have a small business producing milk and its derivatives. They also raise and sell pigs.

The program for “Desarollo Agropecuario” (Farming Devlopment) visited her. They helped her with a loan for a press and a machine that skims milk.

She later began raising pigs. She raises them and then butchers them to sell in her meat market and to some customers.

They currently have customers in Taxco and Cuernavaca.

She used the loan that she received to buy raw material like calcium chloride, whitener, and rennet. She uses these to make Oaxaca cheese.

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.
