In this Group: María , Martin , Agustin , Abelino , Timoteo , Rafael
This is a group of 6 people who raise cattle for a living. They live about 20 kilometers outside the city of Momostenango, Totonicapán. Currently they have a lot of cattle, but they need more capital to buy pasture. The members have organized themselves as a group because together they can obtain a loan that will allow them to have higher quality livestock that they can sell to locals. This way they will be able to sell their cattle with greater frequency. Currently, they have a six months sales rotation with their capital, which is also used for other trades like making clothing.

They will not have problems with the repayment responsibilities. They have spent about 13 years raising animals. With the financing they will get through Kiva, they can receive greater revenues, which will allow them to help develop the community where they live.

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.
