In this Group: Sara, Elizabeth, Zabira, Pudensia, Monica
Sara is 50 years old and is married with 5 children, ages 7 to 18 years old. She and her husband also take care of two other children. Sara owns a small animal stock, a business she started in 1998. Every day, she works from 7am to 6pm at her business, and can earn a monthly profit of about $60 from her sales.

Additional Information

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.
