In this Group: Rosalinda, Maria Vitalina, Silvina , Teresa
Señora Rosalinda Hernández Pérez lives in the riversiD. settlement of Santa Catarina, near Copainalá in the state of Chiapas, Mexico. She is 27 years old, and a single mother with a little boy, aged 3. She sells clothes in the nearby communities. She has been doing this work for the past 2 years, and from it she earns enough to take care of herself and her son. It was to meet the needs of her young son that Rosalinda took up this work, to be able to bring him up and give him a good education without the support of a partner. She is striving to ensure his wellbeing and that of her family, and that is why she goes out and works at growing her business day by day. Rosalinda would like to have a place where she can sell her merchandise. She also wants to save up money so she has it when she needs it, and she wants to give her son a better future in life.

Seeking a loan from [field partner] FRAC, Rosalinda has formed a group called "Las Naranjas" ("The Oranges"). Ther are four people in the group, who each work for themselves. They chose this name because the place they come from is known for its harvest of oranges. The people in the group are:
doña Teresa Juárez Vázquez, who sells also clothes; María Vitalina, who sells clothes and ground coffee; and Silvina Aguilar R., who sells guineo leaves (similar to banana leaves, these are used in making local dishes such as tamales).

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.
