María Neófita lives with her partner Zenaido, with whom she has five children: Patricia Yurídia, sixteen years old, Britania Marisol, thirteen years old, Rocío, seven years old, Enrique Daniel, four years old, and Anderson, who is two.

She has been a seamstress for seven years. She tells us it is going well for her. She is asking for the loan to purchase materials that she uses to make clothing, such as buttons, lace, closures, and thread, among other items. She will be able to buy better quality, and her clients will be satisfied with the work that she does.

Her inspiration started because her mother taught her to sew. When she was in secondary school, she started in a dressmaking workshop, which supported her a lot in improving the quality of her work. She notes that this activity gives her a lot of support, since it brings in better earnings for her household.

Her greatest desire is that with this activity, she can save some money, so that with it she can succeed in moving forward and also in supporting her children, who are still in school.

The members of the group are: Reinalda, who makes tamales in order to sell them in her town; Lorena, who buys cosmetics such as makeup, lipstick, hair dye, among others; and María Magdalena, who buys fruits and vegetables to sell in the market.

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.
