The loan that María is requesting will be used to buy barley for her guinea pigs and bran for her pigs. María learned how to raise small farm animals and farming from her parents. Now, she works independently with her husband’s help. She sells her animals, which are in high demand, in Muyurina’s markets and she sells the vegetables she grows in the Nery García wholesale market.

María has been with Finca for two cycles and she enjoys the meetings very much because she has learned how to save and work in them. Her dream is to have a guinea pig farm and to be able to build her own house.

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.
