In this Group: Guadalupe , Federico , Maria De Los Angeles , Aide , Felipa , Gabriela , Agustin , Eusebia , Anastacia, Vicente , Elia
The Flor Del Rio (Flower of the River) group is made of 11 persons, each one of whom has a business. The group is located in a community in which people are very hardworking, happy, and friendly. The climate is warm and there are many rubber trees around the town from which the sap can be extracted. Many of the community’s inhabitants engage in this activity.

Señor Vicente is one of the members of this group. He is 52 years old and married. He studied only until the second grade of primary school because his parents didn’t have the resources to give him more education. He says that his father always told him that, although he didn’t have schooling, he had to learn to work at a trade in order to earn a livelihood. He learned the trade of butcher. Twenty years ago he opened his own business and from this his family got ahead. He carries out his sales on the weekends (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), but his work begins on Thursday since he has to arrange for the pigs and cow to put on sale the other days. When he slaughters a pig, he doesn’t only sell the meat, but rather carnitas (roasted pork), chicarrones (pork rinds), chorizo, and tacos to make good use of the meat and earn a little more. These dishes sell very well since his is the only meat market in the community.

Don Vicente will invest this loan in the purchase of pigs and a cow in order to be able to carry out his sales. He wants his business to prosper with this investment since he wants to enlarge his shop and give his family a better quality of life. The group sends a greeting to the people who make these loans possible. They are thankful for the support which is being offered. The remaining members of the group are:

Guadalupe, sale of soft drinks
Frederico, sale of groceries
Maria de los Angeles, clothing sales
Aide, sale of sweets
Felipa, sale of Mexican snacks
Gabriela, sewing workshop
Agustin, soft drink sales
Eusebia, sale of 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.
