Amanecer (Flat) Group
In this Group: Brigida, Candelaria , Ines Romana, Soraida
Soraida Pérez Pérez lives in Coapilla, in the state of Chiapas, México. She is forty-four years old and married to Julio Cesar Pérez Patricio. She has not had the opportunity to have children, but even so, she is very happy and thankful to God for giving her a home.

Her work is selling live chickens. However, a few months ago, she began an additional activity, a nutritional club [offering natural medicines], so that she can obtain more income for her household from the two activities she carries out.

She comments that the reason she decided upon this activity was that it requires some investment but produces higher profits, and so she can help her parents with their small expenses, since they are advanced in age and she does not want them to have to work very much.

She is requesting the loan to buy more medicines and stock her business, and also to buy chickens so she can obtain income from her two businesses, so that she will not be limited by the expenses she has to pay each day. Her husband supports her by working in agriculture, growing corn and beans to sell, and together they will pay off the loan that the Realidad Foundation has granted to Soraida.

With the earnings she obtains from her businesses, she plans to save up to construct a larger home, so that she can live comfortably, and in the future, she would also like to have a store where she can sell her products.

The members of the Amanecer ["Dawn"] group each pursue a different business activity. They are:

Brígida Pérez E.: she will invest the loan in selling butchered and pre-seasoned chickens.

Candelaria V. Hernández: her business is selling agricultural products.

Inés Romana López García: she will invest in selling snack foods such as tamales, tacos, empanadas, tostadas and others.

Soraida Pérez Pérez: she is the member who was interviewed, and she will invest the loan in buying medicinal products.

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.
