Las Flores 2 Group
In this Group: Luciana, Maria Luisa, Rosario , Ma Rosario, Maria Veronica, Maria Juana, Mariana, Gregoria
The "Las Flores 2" group is found located in a very tranquil community in which many people work growing corn. The majority of the group members have known each other since they were little. They express that they enjoy living in this community because the festivals are very pleasant, especially the festival to celebrate the Virgen of Guadalupe on December 12th. There are seven members that make up this group, all of them very hard-working and responsible women. They they choose the group name because they liked it a lot and everyone agreed.

Luci, who is the group's representative, is 20 years old and has lived with Marco Antonio in a common law marriage for the past four years. Together they have formed a family with one child who does not yet attend school. Luci is requesting the loan to be able to purchase two young lambs that she will raise so that they can reproduce and someday she will have enough and can sell them when she encounters financial problems. She began raising sheep five years ago and had two sheep, but she had to sell them. For this reason, she wants to have sheep again. Luci comments "I really enjoy this activity. The only difficulty is that at this moment, I don't have a stable to accomodate them." Luci believes that if the sheep don't have a good stable, they may get sick more easily because it is cold in the mornings. However, this hasn't hindered her from continuing to raise her sheep so that some day, she will have many sheep, both large and small. This will help Luci's family to live without financial worries. Like Luci, the rest of the group members are also happy to receive the loan that Vision Fund and KIVA have granted them. Doña Gregoria will invest in traditional clothing. Luisa and Veronica will invest in a grocery store. Rosario will invest in raising chickens. Ma Rosario will invest in clothing. Doña Juana will invest in sweets and Mariana will invest in chickens.

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.
