This group, Virgen de Fátima, is currently in its third loan cycle with Mujeres Emprendedoras. Its 13 members are all very responsible and hardworking women. They each have a business with which they help their family to survive. Blanca is 36 years old, married with 6 children. She buys and sells herbal remedies in bunches that she gathers herself from the surrounding mountains and forests with the help of her children. She also buys remedies in packets and resells them. She is a very humble and devoted person, who tells us that, even though she has to work a lot, she does not mind because it is all for the sake of her children. She asks for this loan to buy remedies in packets, which will enable her to fulfil her customers' orders.

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.
