The Comité Barrio Alegre (Happy Neighborhood) group was formed on July 16, 2008 when the Managing Director, Zulli González, contacted the weekly meeting coordinator to get information about the Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras (Committee for Enterprising Women). With the information at hand, she was able to find 17 women who are now working with the Committee for Enterprising Women program and they are now on their fifth loan cycle. The group members are very happy to work together in solidarity. Each of the ladies has a different type of business. Doña Zulli makes and sells baked goods, such as cookies, breads, cakes and other products. Doña Zulli and her husband, a mason, work together and aim to get ahead with dignity. The loan they are requesting is being used to buy ingredients to make baked goods such as flour, cheese, sweets, sugar, milk and other products.

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.
