Grupo De Juana Group
She began her business about twenty years ago, when her husband lost his job and was having a tough time finding another one. Juana now works with her daughter and her two friends, Maria Isabel and Johana, raising and selling pigs. Juana hopes that this loan will help her expand her business by allowing her to buy more pigs and sell them at a faster rate.
She hopes that in the future she can save enough money to buy a plot of land on which to establish a pig farm, something which would further stabilize her family's income.

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.
