She says that they come to measure 40 to 60 centimeters, and they come to weigh as much as 500 grams or more. She also says that she gives them food called “pellet”, which is comprised of flour and fish. She feeds them one or two times a day. She sells them when they are between four and five months old.

She says that it is a nice, strong fish, and its meat is very nutritious. It is also very hygienic because it is not able to live in dirty waters or it will die. She goes to the town of Zitácuaro to sell them. She takes them in a tank that she has set up in a truck.

Additional Information

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.
