* not pictured
Ana and her husband have a clothing business where both of them work in order to get their family ahead. They have three school-aged children. At the same time, Ana has a small business selling snacks that she started with her savings. This has allowed her to help more with the household expenses, especially with the education of their children. The loans from EDAPROSPO allowed her to gather more capital so that her business could continue to grow and her store is now filled with snacks. Ana is a member of Mujeres Forjadoras Communal Bank, a very close-knit and hardworking group. In the future she wants to find a larger venue for her business, expanding it with grocery sales. For now, she will use a part of the loan to buy fabrics, and the other part to buy snacks to sell.

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.
