The group “Los Amigos Responsables” (The Responsible Friends) started 8 months ago. The members are united, as indicated by their group name, by a mutual feeling of responsibility to meet their loan commitments. The 8 members of this group live in La Libertad, a zone in Comas district.

Claudia Mimí was chosen by her group as their president. She has been selling food from her home for 3 years. She started the business at the suggestion of some of her friends, who knew how delicious her prepared food was.

One of Claudia Mimí's goals is to be able to participate in the gastronomic festival "Mixtura", an event that takes place once a year in Lima, Perú and attracts the best chefs in the country.

With this loan, she will invest in the purchase of ingredients and utensils. She will be able to offer a better variety of stews to her customers and take advantage of the increase in business from the holidays.

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.
