Svet Sharshekeeva's Group
Svet breeds various types of cattle and resells them in a local market to meat-packing firms. Svet and her husband are members of a local farming group that is actively involved in promoting agriculture and cattle breeding and defending the rights of farmers.
The loan from Kiva lenders will be spent on purchasing extra heads of cattle for further breeding and reselling. Svet is very thankful to lenders, since they will pull her family out of a very tough financial state.

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.
