The other members work in different kinds of businesses, such as sewing sports clothing, selling oil, selling aguayos [type of traditional cloth], selling clothing, selling plastics, and transporting passengers. The members trust in their abilities and in the charisma they have developed in order to sell their products.

The loans are for increasing their capital, buying merchandise, ingredients, raw materials, and in some cases, parts for machinery.

The communal bank is already in its fourth loan cycle, demonstrating responsibility and a true desire to get ahead, growing each day for the benefit of their households. To clarify, some of the members in the photo are pictured with their spouses.

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.
