* not pictured
This group is called "Blanco y Negro" (Black and White) and is located in the State of Mexico. Sandra is a member of the group and is originally from this community. She has three children and tells us that she has been selling beauty products for five years. She started her business indirectly, helping another lady. Gradually, she realized that it was a good business and chose to start her own business. She is taking courses on selling this type of product so that she can strengthen her business and increase her sales. Over time, she has managed to increase her sales and, through her business, has managed to improve her own quality of life and that of her family.

Sandra will use her loan to buy more beauty products since she has a lot of orders. She will save some of her profits to pay for her children's education and to continue investing in her business. Her dream is to be a successful woman and, some day, to be able to see her children become professionals.

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.
