This group, called Huamuchapa, is located in the town of Tecoanapa, Guerrero. The members decided to give the group this name because it is the name of the neighborhood where they all live.

This story is about Silvia C. V. since she is the group's president. Silvia is 37 years old, married, and has four children: Arturo, Areli, KarL. and Alejandro. All four are in school. The first two are in the sixth and fifth year of elementary school, the third is in the third year of pre-school and the youngest is barely a year old. Silvia owns a fruit store.

Silvia decided to start out in this business because a family member told her that it was a very good source of income. She also knew that it would help her to support her husband with their household expenses and their children's education expenses and would improve their family's quality of life. Silvia invested her loan in buying merchandise such as: apples, bananas, oranges, tomatoes, chili peppers, onions, potatoes, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce and other fruit and veg.

Silvia is very happy because she says that her business is doing very well. Both her sales and her number of customers have increased quite a bit. This means that her profits have also risen satisfactorily, so much so, in fact, that she has even been able to buy an iron.

Silvia's goal is to continue supporting her children in their studies so that they can finish complete their higher education and have a better future. She would also like to grow her small business some more since she would like to expand the premises where she has her fruit store a little. This will mean that she can better stock her store and thereby sell a wider range of produce and improve her profits.

Silvia tells us that her group works very well since all the members have known each other for some time and they are very responsible in making their repayments since they don't want to let people down after they have placed their trust in them and supported them.

Silvia is very grateful to Fundación Realidad and Kiva lenders for the unconditional support that they are providing since it has meant that her quality of life and that of her family has improved and she has been able to continue investing in her business.

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.
