Within the group is Patricia, who is 41 years old, and who's nickname is Paty. She is married, with 5 children (ages 21, 18, 16, 15 and 13). Four of her children work to help her with the household expenses. Among those, two work at a retail store, another in a factory and one helps her with the business. Paty started helping her mother with the sale of cleaning products in the market to help her siblings and herself get ahead. She decided to continue with the business to help her family get ahead.

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.
