Mrs. Gerónima R. Pérez, 45, is married. She did not have the opportunity to attend school. She has five children one of whom is studying. She is a housewife but also has a business that generates income for family support. She’s been raising animals, pigs and chickens in this case, for four years.

In order to increase business capital she decided to organize a group of women who do different productive activities: raising livestock, merchandise sales, basket weaving. The loan they are requesting will be used to buy pigs and chickens since this is Gerónima’s line of work. In the future they hope to have more pigs and chickens because this will make her production yield higher profits so that she can improve her profits and her family’s living condition.

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.
