This group is called Sol and is made up of ten hardworking, humble people with a desire to improve their quality of life. The members of this group are from a small town called Tetepelcingo where there are many banana plants and green trees.

Upon arriving to the community there is a river called Río Grande where they go to bathe and wash their clothing. The river has very little water.

In the locality the majority of the people make a living making tapestries as it's one of the things they like the most and that their ancestors taught them.

In the locality of Tetepelcingo they have a celebration. On the 6th and 7th of May they celebrate the town's holiday. There are rides, little bulls, and castles. All the residents go out to the park to have fun and the kids have fun going on the rides.

One of the members of this group is Teresa who's thirty-four years old. Mrs. Teresa has made a living making tapestries and tablecloths for ten years.

She tells us that what she likes most about her business is giving her customers good service since they ask for tapestries for baptisms and girls' fifteenth birthdays.

Mrs. Tere, as the members of her group know her, tells us that it was her mom who taught her how to make tapestries and combine colors to look beautiful.

Mrs. Tere is happily married to Elpidio who's thirty-six years old and with whom she has four children: Julio David who's sixteen years old, Litzi who's eleven years old, Cristian who's eight years old, and Enrique who's six years old.

She tells us that at times she doesn't have thread with which to work and that it makes her sad as she so enjoys her work. She feels bad when she doesn't have the resources to do what she most likes which is to makes her tapestries and tablecloths.

Mrs. Tere tells us that she is very happy with her business and that it provides her with good earnings. In this way she can give a better life to her children.

She requested the loan to buy more material to make tapestries like: white thread, silk thread, worsted thread.

She tells us that she is very happy with the foundation for supporting her so that her business grows and that in this way she can improve her quality of life.

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.
