'Las Vecinas' (The Neighbors) is a Credituyo community bank which has seven female members and is entering its first loan cycle. The women gave the group this name because they all live in the same neighborhood, very close to each other.

Martha is one of the group's members. She lives with her husband and two children in Nuevo Escobedo neighborhood. She has a 13 year-old daughter and a 4 year-old son. Martha has a taco stall where she works together with her husband in order to support her family. The tacos are called “Los Sureños”. She started selling 8 years ago in a location near her home. She sells roasted meat and pork tacos, quesadillas with meat and burgers.

Martha requested this loan to invest in her business so that she could continue selling her products and keep her customers happy. She would like to use her profits to continue supporting her daughter's education. Her daughter is currently in high school and she tells us that she is top of her class.

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.
