Xecaxjojense Group
In this Group: Santos, Paula, Teresa
Doña Santos, Doña Paula and Doña Teresa have joined together to form a solidarity group named Xecaxjojense. The group leader, Doña Santos, would like to use her portion of the loan to purchase traditional blouses for resale. She has been selling traditional blouses for 5 years and would like the opportunity to increase her sales and income. She started out in the business selling clothing as an employee for someone else, but she prefers to work independently and have the opportunity to grow her own business.

Santos is 40 years old, single, and has 6 children. She went to school long enough to learn how to read and write which has helped her tremendously to run her own business. She would love to, one day, run a large clothing store in her community.

The other two members of the Xecaxjojense Group are involved in animal raising and plastic goods sales. Both will use their portion of the loan to help grow their respective businesses.

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.
