The 10-member Total Eclipse group is located in Mexico state. Yolanda is the group’s treasurer and for the past year has earned her living fattening pigs. She is seeking a loan to buy some more piglets which she will look after and fatten for five months, as she knows that in this period of time the piglets will increase in value allowing her to sell them for a considerable profit. With the money she earns she is planning to make some repairs to her house; she alone supports the household.

Yolanda is 24 years old and studied up to third year of high school. She is divorced and has a 5-year old son.

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.
