Caritas Alegres (Cuenca) Group
One of the members of the group is Martha. She is 27 years old and a single mother of three children who are 12, 10 and 7 years old. All her children study in the city school. They do not have their own house, so they rent.
Martha works in the market selling potatoes, for which they pay her a monthly salary. She has been working in this job for 15 years. She works from Sunday to Sunday from 7 in the morning until 7 at night.
In the communal bank, she is in her second loan cycle and will invest her loan in her children’s schooling expenses.
Her goal is to have her own business selling potatoes, since she knows the business already.

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.
