Localidad  Del Carrizo Group
In this Group: Feliciana , Floriberta, Patricia Juana, Olivia Micaela , Emma , Jeronimo Rolando , Jeronimo Francisco, Reina , Reyna Matilde
This group is called “Localidad del Carrizo” and consists of nine indigenous individuals who speak the Mixtec language. They say that they chose this name for their group because they identify themselves according to their beliefs and traditions. All of them are from the same community and are hard workers who are of indigenous descent.

One of the members of the group is Sra. Olivia, who sells utensils of the Tupperware brand. She travels to neighboring towns in order to offer her merchandise. Olivia has been in business for approximately four years. She says that she started out selling Arabela products (a line of cosmetics and personal care products), but she was not able to generate good profits because the people in her town rarely use makeup. In addition, she sold very little in the neighboring towns so she decided to sell utensils through catalogs. She accepts payments in three weekly installments.

Doña Olí, as she is called by the other members of her group, has been happily married to Sr. Alfonso (Poncho) for 34 years. Don Poncho helps his wife sell on the weekends when they travel to the neighboring towns. Whenever they visit relatives, they bring merchandise to offer to them. They have three children, two daughters and a son. Michel is 12 years old, Miriam is 9 years old, and little Alfonso Damián is 5 years old. Doña Olí is requesting a loan in order to buy utensils such as wash basins, containers, glasses, and frying pans. She is pleased with the opportunity that Fundación Realidad has given her so that she can continue her business and make it larger. Olivia is also grateful that the organization is assisting all of the members so that they can fulfill their dreams of growing and helping their families.

The other members of the group are as follows:
• Feliciana sells fish.
• Floribertha sells food.
• Patricia Juana sells food.
• Emma sells chickens.
• Jerónimo Rolando sells fruits and legumes.
• Jerónimo Francisco sells fruits and vegetables.
• Reina sells cheese.
• Reyna Matilde sells food.

They thank Fundación Realidad for helping people from small towns who want to succeed.

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.
