This group is called Jesús. It is comprised of ten hard-working indigenous people who have the desire to improve themselves, to improve their lives, and to expand their businesses. This way they will be able to give their children a better future.

The members of the group are from Pinotepa Nacional, Oaxaca, land of progress and growth. The traditions of Pinotepa are the patron saints and the “Fiesta Quinto Viernes” better known as Holy Week. The games come, and many foreigners come to sell their handicrafts. There are many small businesses in the community, and they reflect their work. The people in Pinotepa wear petticoats and mandils (a type of apron).

Cristina, age 37, is one of the members of this group. She is known for being hard-working and kind. Xochitl, as she is better known by her communal bank colleagues and friends, sells groceries like cookies, soft drinks, coffee, sugar, bread, beans, rice, oil, and chilies. Xochitl tells us that she has a small place where she sells her merchandise and tends to her customers kindly and affectionately. She always tries to have her store stocked so that her customers will find what they are looking for.

Xochitl tells us that what she likes the most about her business is having a store full of merchandise and waiting on her customers well. What she does not like about her business is when she does not have enough money to buy more merchandise and her store is empty.

She tells us that she is very happy because, thanks to God, she has been able to continue her business, and, therefore, she has been able to improve her quality of life. She asked for the loan to buy more groceries to sell. She thanks the Fundación for always giving her the opportunity to be an enterprising woman with hopes and dreams.

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.
