Mirtha C., age 36, is a member of the Santa Ana Communal Bank. The bank was formed four years ago. Its members are people who strive day to day to increase their household income.

Mirtha C. is an example of this. She has four children; three of them are minors. She sells vegetables every day in a small market that is close to her house. She started in this business because income in her house was too low, and she needed greater earnings.

Through her work efforts she was able to build her house and give her children an education. In the future she would like to finish building her house and expand her vegetable stand. She will use the recent loan to buy vegetables for her business.

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.
