Hilaria is one of the members of this group. She is married to Navor and she has a little daughter. She is requesting the loan because she wants to start a business of selling groceries in her home since there is no other where she lives, She thought it would be a good option so she could have another source of income for her family. She will use the loan to buy: soap, oil, toilet paper, detergent, sugar and more.
Hilaria decided to begin this business because her husband doesn’t earn enough to cover the expenses and because her little daughter needs many things and she isn’t able to buy all of them.
Hilaria says that before she was married, she made bread but she stopped once she met her husband.
Her goal is to have her own house since now she lives with her mother-in-law and she plans to succeed with effort and dedication.

Este grupo se llama Americanistas se llama así porque la mayoría de los integrantes son aficionados al equipo de fútbol America, este grupo esta integrado por 9 personas que de dedican al trabajo diario para el sustento de su familia Lourdes (Venta de ropa), Hortencia (Elaboración de bolsas bordadas), Hilaria y Guillermo (Venta de abarrotes), Sofía (Venta de catalogo), Reyna y Juana (Venta de calzado), Adela (Venta de Herbalife), Juan (Taller de serigrafía).
Hilaria es una de las integrantes de este grupo, esta casada con el señor Navor, tiene una pequeña hija. Ella solicito el préstamo porque quiere iniciar un negocio de venta de aborreces en su casa ya que por donde vive no existe ningún otro negocio de abarrotes y pensó que es una buena opción para pueda tener un nuevo ingreso para la aportación en su familia, con el crédito comprara: jabón, aceite, papel higiénico, detergente, azúcar, entre otros productos.
Hilaria decidió iniciar este negocio porque con lo que su esposo gana no le alcanza para los gastos y como su pequeña hija necesita de muchas cosas a veces no tiene para comprárselas y espera que con este pequeño negocio obtenga ganancias para así poder comprarle todo lo que su hija necesita.
Hilaria comenta que antes de que se casara ella se dedicaba a la elaboración de pan pero cuando conoció a su esposo dejo de hacerlo.
Su meta es hacer su propia casa ya que donde vive es de su suegra, y lo piensa lograr con esfuerzo y dedicación
Esta muy contenta por el crédito otorgado y agradece por este gran apoyo.

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.
