The "friends forever" association belongs to the Pan-American center. With the help of it's loan officer, the group is very responsible in all of its activities.

Nearly all of the group members are married, and many have families. Most of the daily costs of running a home exceed the income earned from their businesses, as the group members have many children with growing needs.

Most group members sell various products from their stores and also on the street. For example, some sell groceries, cheese, vegetables, and cleaning products. They also weave blankets. The members would like to improve their sales and therefore need capital to buy supplies wholesale. In this way they'll improve their income and the economic stability of their homes.

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.
