Duo Torrelianas is made up of Maudelia, 39, who has three children (20, 17, and 5 years old). She started her business five years ago selling pork rinds and pig meat. She looks after this business on the weekends. During the week she makes her living selling cheese and cream. She is requesting this loan because she needs to buy more meat to prepare the pork rinds and also to try and rent a stall in the Mixco market because as of right now, all of her sales are made as a street vendor. She sends blessings and gives thanks for the support.

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.
