Mrs. Karla Judith A. is a merchant selling silver Jewelry, an activity she’s been in for three years. She sells her items door to door in various firms like cigar factories and some private and public offices. Most of the sales are on credit so she dedicates one day a week to collection of payments. Karla has a large customer base because her jewels are of very good quality, she has a wide selection and payment plans for her customers. Karla is a single mother of a beautiful girl who is currently a student teacher at a local elementary school; all this thanks to Karla’s efforts to get ahead with her daughter.

Mrs. Minga, as she’s better known in the neighborhood, has a large customer base because her business is located in an area with workshops and other businesses so there is a lot of foot traffic. She is in a common law relationship and has two children the oldest of whom is totally independent and the younger is in a local elementary school.

Mrs. Delfina Antonia C. is a merchant selling groceries in a store she runs called “Rocío.” She has five years experience running it. Delfina has a large customer base because of the strategic location of her store. Delfina is a widow and mother of three children who are adults and completely independent.

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.
