Their children are growing and have greater needs but they are still able to provide for them. Most of the group members make a living as merchants selling goods like chocolates, products for cleaning, footwear, socks and pantyhose, cellular phones and other items. Now they want to improve their profits and sales by purchasing wholesale merchandise. This way they will be able to increase their income and contribute to financial stability for their families.

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.
