Miriam is one of the members of this group. She is 38 years old and studied up to the third year of high school. She is married to Samuel who works as a farm laborer. They have two children: one is in high school and the other is in elementary school. Miriam tells us that she has always enjoyed working and that, when they got married, she and her husband decided to open a business so that they could earn a little extra money and offer their family a better quality of life.

Miriam tells us that, as her husband knows how to make bread, they opened a bakery. They both work in the bakery and, over time, they gradually grew their business and opened a small grocery store as well. Now Miriam and her family serve in the two small businesses.

Miriam needs this loan to invest in buying oil, eggs, flour, gas, sugar and yeast for making her bread and sugar, beans, oil, canned goods, toilet paper, soft drinks, sweets, soap and some stationery products (pens, pencils and pencil sharpeners) to re-stock her grocery store business.

Miriam hopes that this investment will help her businesses to prosper as she would like her children to grow up to have a profession. She says "thank you for bringing these loans to our 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.
