Las Pascuas Group
In this Group: Guadalupe, Gricel Anavel , Cira , Saray, Leovigildo Cristobal
This group called Las Pascuas is made up of Guadalupe, who is going to buy paint with her loan; Gricel Anavel, Cira, and Saray, who are going to buy bags, oil, flour, and paint; and Leovigildo Cristóbal, who is going to buy livestock. The members of the group want to say to Kiva and to Vision Fund: "Thank you for your loan, because you help us achieve our dreams of growing our businesses."

Cira, 38, lives in a common-law relationship with her partner, a bricklayer. They couple has two children: a girl who is in a college-preparatory program and a boy in elementary school.

Cira makes "obleas" (a traditional Mexican sweet) with honey and pumpkin seeds to sell. She began her business 18 years ago and learned to make the sweet on her own by just watching how her neighbors worked. Cira really enjoys making and selling the obleas and she gives thanks to God for having a job to help her family. She has been using her profits to reinvest in raw materials, to buy food for her household, and for her children's school expenses.

Her hopes and dreams are to have good health to continue working and for her children never to lack anything so they can continue studying.

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.
