Her husband is in the building trade. He is a bricklayer. With hard work every day, they have managed to build their own home.

María began working as a cleaner 20 years ago and she is still doing this. She only works some days and without regular hours. When she has days free, she looks after her animals: pigs, guinea pigs and hens. She has had a kiosk for one year and she spends time working there.

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.
