Most of the group members sell clothing. For example, Vicky sells pants for all ages. Other group members sell jackets, winter clothing, or baby and children's clothing, while some prepare and serve meals.

The group members are requesting larger loan amounts in order to buy more merchandise so that they can increase their sales and their incomes. They all share the ultimate goal of improving their families' quality of life.

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.
