In this Group: Brijida , Candelaria, Soraida, Magdalena
The group called "Amanecer" (Dawn) consists of four women who live in the town of Coapilla. The Festival of the Virgin of Candelaria is celebrated here on February 2.

Magdalena was the person selected to be interviewed. She is married to Sr. Bulmaro and they have three children. Two of them are already married and the other one, who is still under her responsibility, is in the third year of high school.

Doña Magdalena is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of ingredients such as corn, oil, raisins, meat, and banana leaves for making tamales. She has been working for two years and four months and says that she has done very well. This has enabled her to make a slight improvement in her income. Magdalena engages in this business so that she can help her husband with the household expenses. She is also able to help with her children's expenses, such as school supplies. After she provides for the welfare of her family, she has enough left over to submit the loan payments in her group on time. She wants to continue receiving assistance so that she can move forward in her business. Over time, she would like to pursue another business.

The other members of the group are as follows:
• Brigida will invest in her business of selling medicinal products.
• Sra. Candelaria will invest her loan in the purchase of corn for eventual resale.
• Sra. Zoraida will invest in the purchase of medicinal products.

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.
