El Capulin (Flat) Group
In this Group: Flavia, Soraida , Elisea
The group is called El Capulín and is made up of three women. They each make a living performing their economic activity and live in a locality called Miguel Hidalgo.

Elísea was interviewed. She lives in a common law marriage with Claudio with whom she has seven children who still in her care.

She requested the loan to invest in the purchase and sale of ranch chicken which she later sells butchered where she has been working for fifteen years. She says that things are going well for her since she has been able to obtain income for her household with the loan.

She began this economic activity since she also wants to contribute to the household earnings so that her family isn't lacking anything that's most necessary.

What she would like is for this small economic activity to continue moving forward until it can support her children's' education so that they can also get ahead.

The members of the group are:

Flavia, who will invest the loan in the purchase and sale of pigs to sell by the kilo; and Soraida, who will invest it in the purchase and sale of jewelry.

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.
