Bicentenario Dos Group
Magdalena F. G. is a member of the group. She is 64 years old and didn't go to school. She has been selling wooden handicrafts for 3 years and has a son. She requests a loan to invest in more merchandise, because the handicrafts she sells are very sought after in her community. Her clients are her neighbours and the people her clients recommend her to. She is happy and excited about the loan, which she wants to develop her business and her sales. She also hopes that the profits will allow her to stay solvent and support her family, since she is quite old and only has her business to support herself and meet their needs.

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.
