Her business in making and selling tortillas is very lovely. She is always visited by her clients at home where she does the selling. A few days ago, they celebrated the festival of her village and she had great sales with the food she sold. Now that the Christmas festivities are approaching, she wishes to invest in the wholesale purchase of corn by the sack in order to have better profits, and also in the purchase of firewood by the truck load; through this, she is able to pay less and get more firewood.

She tells us that she already has some tortilla orders, but the corn that she has in the house is not enough. She also has to make some tamale deliveries for the Christmas festivities.

She is asking for a loan in order to buy corn and to also buy firewood wholesale.

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.
