In this Group: Teresa , Urema , Bellarmina
This group is called "Las Nubecitas" (The Little Clouds), and is made up of three women, Urema, Bellarmina and Teresa.
Doña Teresa lives on the “Julian Grajales” shore in the municipality of Copainala, Chiapas. The community is known as “San Antonio”. Doña Teresa has been married to Sr. Oscar for 14 years; together they have one son, who is in 2nd grade. She is happy and pleased to have a good family.
She is requesting the loan in order to open a grocery store and purchase merchandise, such as: beans, sugar, oil, eggs, flour, cookies, milk, soap and other items. In this way, she will be able to work and to help her husband with the household expenses. He works outside their neighborhood as a radio electronics technician.
The other two members use their loans in other businesses. Doña Bellarmina uses hers to purchase pigs, and Urema also uses hers for a grocery store.
Sra. Teresa's greatest wish is that her business grows each day and be a place where she can work as the clerk. She also wants to see her son grow with a good start to his education and a have good future.

El grupo se llama las Nubecitas y se forma de tres mujeres, Urema, Bellarmina y Teresa.
Doña Teresa, vive en la ribera “Julian Grajales” municipio de Copainala, Chiapas. La comunidad es conocida como “San Antonio”. Ella está casada con el señor Oscar desde hace 14 años, con quien procreo un hijo que cursa el segundo grado de primaria. Ella está feliz y contenta por tener una buena familia.
La razón por la cual solicita el préstamo es para poner su tienda de abarrotes y comprar mercancía como son: frijol, azúcar, aceite, huevo, harina, galletas, leche, jabón entre otros. Así poder trabajar y apoyar a su esposo en los gastos de la casa ya que trabaja fuera de la localidad como radio técnico.
Las otras dos integrantes más utilizan su préstamo en otra actividad como doña Bellarmina en la compra de marranos, y Urema también en su tienda de abarrotes.
Su mayor anhelo de la señora teresa es que su negocio crezca día a día en donde pueda trabajar y ser dependiente de la misma. Como también ver a su hijo crecer con buenos principios de educación y buen futuro.

Additional Information

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.
