R. IseL. Martínez is a member of the group. She sells cosmetics; a business that she has had for one year. She is requesting this loan to invest in cosmetics since this is the season when she has most sales. R. studied up to the third year of high school. She is single, 20 years old, and lives with her parents and three brothers, two of whom are married and one of whom is single. She would like this loan to expand her business so that she can use her profits to enrol in school and continue studying so that she can finish a university-level course and, in this way, be able to support her parents with their household expenses and give them a better quality of life.

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.
