They are persons who live 20 kilometers away from the city of Momostenango. The members of the group are, for the most part, in clothing sales and commerce. Some raise pigs and cattle, others are regional and typical basket merchants. They all seek to help their businesses grow and at this time, when sales have declined considerably due to competition in the same areas, they need funding to stock merchandise so that they can increase sales and profits. This contributes to the improvement of each of their families.

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.
