Braulia is 35 years old and belongs to the San Alejando group, which is the same name as the group's community. Braulia is married and has three children. She is originally from this community, where the economic activity is growing poinsettia and making hand-made crafts. She says that there are a lot of handicrafts and souvenirs because the community is very close to a monarch butterfly sanctuary. Braulia is one of the people who year after year oversee the production of poinsettias to adorn house during Christmastime. She is requesting the loan to purchase manure, fertilizers, insecticides and flowerpots since the production begins right now. She has had this business for the past five years and says that she started it to help her husband with household expenses since all their children are in school. She says that she is proud to work with this kind of flower since people from other countries come to her community to buy them and take them back to their countries, and this fills her with happiness because she sees how important her work is. One of her goals is to set up another nursery where she can produce more flowers, and she is saving this year to purchase materials so she will soon be able to do it. The other members of the group are Veronica, Leticia and Berenice, who also plan to use the loan to grow poinsettias.

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.
