Señora Nadia who is 33 years old and studied until the sixth semester of high school. She is married and the mother of two daughters, 11 and 9 years old, who are attending elementary school. She tells us that a little over 10 years ago she became anxious to help her husband with household expenses and began to sell Tupperware and home interiors (products for the home) in order to earn a little extra money and help her husband with household expenses. She says she sells her products at her children’s school to the mothers of her daughters’ friends and to some other ladies that she knows. She adds that she makes her sales by catalog, first showing her catalog, receiving an order and then making a request and later when the products arrive delivering them and receiving payment.

She needs this loan to invest in the purchase of glasses, plates, catalogs, saucepans, Tupperware, pots, curtains and tablecloths in order to continue her sales. Doña Nadie hopes that with this investment her business will prosper so that each day she will have more customers and her business will grow and provide a better quality of life for her family.

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.
