This group is called “Rebozo D. Mujer” (Woman’s Shawl) because shawls are manufactured in this community and it’s the women who make them. The group is located in Tenancingo in the state of México and it has 10 members.

Julia S. is married. She has a daughter and six sons. She is currently living with four of her children in her home. One of her sons is a teacher and the other lives in the United States.

Julia is from Tenancingo. She wants a loan to invest in the general store she’s had for about fourteen years. What she pretends to do is expand her business buying more products since her community is far from the area's main town and people need a variety of merchandise. This way she both helps people by offering them the products and her family can have daily support.

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.
