Mrs. S. owns and runs a small enterprise selling souvenirs to tourists who come to visit the temples. Recently, S. sold nearly all her items and she wants to acquire more for her shop. Because S. doesn’t have money, she decided to request a loan as capital to buy extra souvenirs to sell.
The three other borrowers are:
Mrs. K., 31, a fish seller, who needs a loan to increase her business capital.
Mrs. C. works as a laborer in a night club and requests a loan to add to her savings in order to buy a new motor to meet her travelling needs.
Mrs. S. is an internal staff member in an entertainment club and needs a loan to replace her old motorcycle.

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.
