Las Hormiguitas Group
In fact, it was her husband who encouraged her to set up that business, due to the fact that his co-workers eat a lot of those foods. Before, she used to sell another type of product, and it was with her savings that she was able to buy a small food cart, indispensable for this type of business.
She can't complain, as it's going very well. Sometimes her customers ask her for extra meals, which means extra earnings. This has allowed her to have a few home comforts. Now she is saving for the future, because she wants to set up a food business in her house. With the loan she receives, she will buy a tank of gas and soft drinks for her business.

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.
