Narciza's business is selling corn tortillas. She started the business 12 years ago. She is requesting this loan to buy corn and gas. Her customers are of the opinion that Narciza's tortillas are the best in town since they are always nice and warm and she pays a lot of attention to hygiene.

As she requests this loan, Narciza feels very happy and grateful. She would like her children to finish their studies. Narciza herself only studied at elementary school level. She is 40 years old, married, and has three children: two boys and one girl. She would like this loan to buy supplies for making tortillas. She also hopes to use this loan to improve her business premises. This group has 9 members.

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.
