In the state of Oaxaca, there exists the town called Acatlan de Perez Figueroa which is known for being located in a sugarcane area. Close to this community, you can find the clever sugar farmer, Pablo Machado. In this community, a group named "La Estacion" has been created which is made up of 13 people.

Alicia is a member of this group. She is 35 years old. She finished high school and is married and has three children who attend the community elementary school.

She tells us that a little more than seven years ago, she began to sell shoes and cosmetics from a catalog, which she sold going house to house with her friends and neighbors. She first shows her catalogs, takes an order, sends it to her suppliers and when the package arrives, she takes it to her customers and receives payment for her products.

Alicia, in addition to selling shoes and cosmetics, sells, from Monday to Friday, Mexican snacks (empanadas, tostadas, tacos, gorditas) and sweets at the elementary school in her community at the time when the children come out to play.

She needs this loan to invest it in the purchase of catalogs, shoes, perfumes, cosmetics, tomatoes, chiles, onions, meat, oil, salt, cream, cheese, and soda so she can prepare her sales and later sell her Mexican snacks.

She hopes that, with this investment, her business prospers since she wishes to give a better quality of life to her children and that, in the future, they study a profession so that they can get ahead.

The rest of the members of the group are called: Margarita - sells Mexican snacks, Domingo - candy shop, Isidra - sells refreshments, Guillermo - sells refreshments, Juana - sells refreshments, Alejandro - raises livestock, Blanca - sells clothing and farms sugarcane, Edith -sells Mexican snacks, Baltazar - sells refreshments, Paula - sells groceries, Juana - sells refreshments and Luz Adriana - sells Mexican snacks.

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.
