This group is called “Lluvia de Luz” (Raining Light), because the community is known for constant rains during a major part of the year. It's located in Puebla and is composed of 11 members.

Juana is treasurer of the group. She is 43 years old and studied until the 3rd year of primary. Juana is married and has a total of 6 children, 1 female and 5 males. Juana buys and sells cattle, a business she started 5 years ago. She is requesting a loan to buy pasture and fodder, for the purpose of keeping her animals in good condition. Juana's customers consider her a very hard-working and responsible person, and she is recognized in her locality as having the best cared for cattle due to the great experience she has in raising cattle.

Juana feels content and gratified with the service and treatment that this institution provides, in view of the fact that it is difficult to obtain credit in this economic sector.

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.
