Solidario Clarisa Group
Sarai, 54, is a single mother with three children. She has worked selling basic food products for four years. She tells us that she needs this loan to buy food products because she needs more capital to stock her store. She tells us she is very happy because she hopes Kiva can give her this help she needs, as do the other members.

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.
