In this Group: Marlene, Eufemia, Ruth Elizabeth, Araceli, Julia Alicia, Alicia, Gladys, Julia Julvia, Maria, Maria Luisa, Maria Soledad, Alustria, Sussy Elizabeth
Marlene is 40 years old, married, and has three children. For eight months she has been part of the "Paz y Desarrollo" ("Peace and Development") group, which is made up of 13 very enthusiastic and hard-working residents of the Collique zone in Comas District. They chose Marlene to be President of their Board of Directors.

She earns income through two businesses. One is grocery sales, which she has been doing for four years. For four months she has also been making knitted bags. She says she enjoyed knitting very much and only did it as a hobby, until one of her customers asked her to make a bag for them. That's how she got started, and she trained to improve her skills and see if she could make money with this work. With these businesses, she has been able to increase her inventory of groceries and buy the materials to make her bags.

One of her goals is to build a training workshop and give knitting classes to people who need to learn. She will invest part of the loan in her grocery store and the rest in knitting materials.

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.
