This group's name, “Las Flores de Barajillas,” was selected by the members because, since they are pure women, they can be considered beautiful like flowers, and because the community they all belong to also bears that name.

This story is about Juana, one of the group members. She is 44 years old and a single mother with 6 children, of whom only Abel is in school, in the 3rd year of pre-school. All her other children are married. Juana has sold cut-up chicken for over 6 years.

Juana says that she decided on this activity while searching for a way to offer a better quality of life for her family and a good education for her children, and she wanted to enjoy more stability and economic solvency. The loan she requests will be used to buy more chickens at wholesale and continue her sales.

Juana's goal is to provide a good education for her son, so he can continue to study and have a profession. Also, she wants to make her business grow much more, since she is thinking of starting construction on her own cut-up chicken shop and thus, have a much greater selection in a shop that will improve and increase her income.

Juana is very grateful for FRAC and Kiva because, thanks to them, she will be able to expand her business and improve her family's quality of life.

Juana's companions are: Gloria, Maria Teresa, Maria, Esmeralda, Citlall, Rocio, Victoria, Sarahi, Guillermina, Elizabeth, Juana and Juana Gomez, each dedicated to different activities, including: sales of fruit and vegetables, clothing, fish, groceries, food, corn, meat, tamales, shoes, perfume, cosmetics, and chicken.

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.
