Madame Marieandre (standing fifth, left to right), is the leader of the group. She is 73, married and the mother of five children. She sells children's clothing and chicken thighs, as she has been doing for five years now.

With this loan she counts on buying children's clothing to sell during the back-to-school period.

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.
