A relationship within the group exists between Yolanda and Evelin. They are cousins, but their incomes are totally independent of each others.
The members are involved in different types of businesses like selling food, selling cosmetics by catalog, selling groceries, and making clothes.
The loan is for the acquisition of materials, supplies, and tools that will help generate greater income. This will give their children a better education and a better quality of life.
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.
