Hiper Mandiri Group
Wenny is 37 years old and has been cooking and selling snacks for the last six years. Her business has been growing and the orders have increased, so she needs this loan to buy more ingredients to expand the snacks she sells. Cooking has always been her hobby, so she is happy she was able to turn it into a profitable business. The main challenge she faces with her business is planning how much to cook each day because the snacks spoil after one day.
Her hope for her business is that she can eventually open a shop inside the mall. Her hope for her family is one day they can have their own home from the savings. Other group members have businesses selling clothes on credit and selling cellphone minute refills.

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.
