The formation of this group was initiated by Señora Ninfa Amaye by inviting her neighbors and friends in the area to join. The group is called "Kuña Guapa". The 15 members are in their twelfth cycle. Each of them has a productive job.

Señora Gladis is one of the members who sells sweets and all kinds of Mexican and Chilean empanadas (turnovers) filled with chicken, ham and cheese, corn and other things. Everyday she prepares these dishes to sell to the various factory workers near her house. The sale of empanadas and sweets provides her with a daily income that is very important as it helps with her family's household expenses, especially food and education.

Señora Gladis, as well as all of her friends in the group, are requesting a loan to invest in her business. She wants to buy ingredients like chicken and beef, corn, condiments and oil for her empanadas and sweets like candy, cookies, caramels, alfajores (filled cookies) and other things.

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.
