This community bank has two members. They are both very tenacious ladies. Aura Marina is 50 years old, widowed, and has three children in her care. One of her children is still school age and her other two are already adults and support her financially. Aura's business is making 'guipiles' (traditional blouses) by hand. She also makes sashes by hand. She is very grateful to God because he has given her an opportunity with this loan. It will be a great help to her.

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.
