Update on El Huamuchi Group

This group called Huamuchi is made up of ten humble and hard-working indigenous women originating from Pinotepa Nacional Oaxaca, where the people are hard-working. One of the members is Carmen, a humble and hardworking woman who is 58 years old and who has made a living selling bread for a year.

Carmen Cleofás tells us that she has two employees who make the bread and she just buys the ingredients, since she is ill and gets injured when she gets close to the heat of the oven. But she is proud of her employees because they complete the orders on time and avoid disappointing her customers.

Carmen Cleofás is happily married to Pablo, who is 53 years old. She says she is happy that her husband treats her well in spite of the fact that he is younger than she is. Dona Carmen, as she is better known to her friends/fellow group members, tells us that she names her bread the following:
"panquesitos", "rosquitas", "gringos", "muelas", "gusano", "donas", "petatitos", "enpanochadas", "papayo" and "costra", and her best-selling bread is "petatitos". Carmen is happy with her business as it allows for a good income and also her customers really like her bread.

She has three children: Pedro Paulo, José Ángel y Emili, who help increase her business and she is happy with the extra income.
She asked for the loan to buy more ingredients for making bread, such as: yeast, Royal brand baking powder, sugar, flour, margarine, eggs and butter.

Carmen tells us that she is very happy with the support that the foundation has given her and her fellow members so that they can change their lives. The other members of the group are:
María Magdalena – sells clothing
Obdulia – sells livestock
Blanca– sells Mexican snacks
Inés – sells Mexican snacks
María Guadalupe – sells food
Elvira – sells fish
María del Carmen – sells tortillas
Diana del Roció – sells clothing
Clotilde – sells clothing

They give thanks to the foundation for helping all of the women, and above all the single mothers.

Additional Information

Concurrent and Successive Loans

Our Field Partners often work with borrowers over a series of loans as the borrowers build credit, take out bigger loans, and expand their businesses. In order to make it easier for our Field Partners to post loans for borrowers who have been listed on Kiva before, we allow them to post successive and concurrent loans for their Kiva borrowers. This means that our Field Partners are able to post a borrower's second, third, etc., loan on Kiva without having to re-enter all of the borrower's information.

This borrower has been listed on Kiva before, so you'll see an updated loan description, as well as excerpts of the original descriptions from earlier loans. Most borrowers take out loans consecutively, meaning that they receive a second loan after having repaid the first. However, sometimes our Field Partners give out concurrent loans, allowing borrowers to take out one primary loan and a secondary "add-on" loan along with it. These "add-on" loans are typically smaller than the borrower's primary loan and serve a different purpose. Because Field Partners can now post loans as successive and concurrent loans, you will be able to track borrower progress over time and see the various ways a borrower is working with our Field Partners through funds from Kiva’s lenders.

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.
