Sebastián Pérez Hernández lives in San Juan neighborhood, in the town of Coapilla, in the State of Chiapas, Mexico. He lives with his partner Elena Pérez Pérez and has a son called Sebastián who works to help them with their household finances.

Sebastián requested a loan to invest in buying and selling livestock such as lambs and cows which he fattens and then sells in his region. His business is doing well. He tells us that he has been in the business for three years and it has provided him with good results.

He started out in this business on his own initiative since, in order to get his family ahead in life, he had to have some means of support, some way of making income so that they could survive. His loans have been helping him a lot.

Every time he makes a sale, he saves the money and buys more livestock so that when he needs to, he has animals available to sell again. In this way he continues working for his family. Although his family is small, he wants to provide them with the best.

Sebastián tells us that he no longer needs anything, only for God to continue granting him with life so that he can continue working and to have the most valuable thing which is his family.

Sebastián is a member of the "Maguellitos" group which has three members: one man and two women. They gave the group this name because where they live there are 'maguey' (American aloe) plants.

The members of the group are:

María Méndez López, who will invest her loan in buying lambs to sell in her region
Míguela Hernández López, who will invest her loan in buying cows and lambs
stián Pérez Hernández, who will invest his loan in buying and selling lambs and cows.

El señor Sebastián Pérez Hernández, vive en la localidad de San Juan Municipio de Coapilla Estado de Chiapas México, vive en unión libre con la señora Elena Pérez Pérez, Y tiene un hijo de nombre Sebastián quien trabaja para apoyarlos con los ingresos de la casa.

El préstamo que solicito es para invertirlo en la compra y venta de ganados como son las becerros y vacas, para engordarlo y luego venderlo de nuevo en la misma región, con esta actividad le va bien ya que nos cometa que lleva tres años y le ha dado buenos resultados.

Inicio por si solo ya que para salir adelante con su familia tenía que tener de donde sostenerse y de dónde sacar los ingreso para sobrevivir y con el préstamo se ha estado ayudando mucho.

De cada venta que realiza lo ahorra comprando mas ganado para que cuando lo necesite esté disponible para venderlo de nuevo y así seguir trabajando para su familia que aun que es pequeña quiere darle lo mejor.

Cometa que llano pide nada más solo que dios que le siga prestando vida para seguir trabajando y tener lo más valioso que es su familia.

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.
