This committee is from Thompson, San Lorenzo. During more than two years of very hard work, this group has grown both socially and financially. The committee's members are known in their area as very hard-working women. They experienced a very difficult situation during their last loan cycle in that several of their members failed to make their weekly repayments. The group repaid their loan and made a pledge to successfully re-start their committee.

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.
