En Camino Al Exito Group
Guadalupe is the group's treasurer. She is 30 years old, studied up to high school level, and has an 11 year-old daughter. She started her business selling cosmetics seven years ago. As the number of customers she serves is increasing, she needs a loan to invest in merchandise, so that she can meet her customer demand. She would like this loan to buy cosmetics. Her customers are loyal to her business because the payments are flexible and her products are very good quality. She would like to use the profits from her business to save up for her daughter's education as she would some day like to see her with a career. She would also like to help cover her family expenses.

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.
