She is happily married to Carmelo who's fifty-two years old and with whom she has two children: Andrea, a woman, and Jonás, a man. They help her milk and mash the curd to make cheese. She requested the loan to buy more jugs and hoops for cheese and trays to put milk.

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.
