She is 30 years old, married, and has 3 children who are 12 years old, 3 years old, and the youngest is 4 moths old. Her oldest daughter is studying at the high school in the city. Her husband works as a bricklayer and is also a cabinetmaker. The house that they live in belongs to them and is the product of their joint work.
Mariana works caring for her daughters who are still very small and, while she is at home, she also raises pigs and chickens which she sells in the community.

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.
