Hello from Peru! Let me introduce you to the Business Group.

Carlos is one of the members. He is 20-years-old, single, and very hard-working. He works in public transportation and with great effort was able to buy himself a motorcycle taxi. He has now been working with his own taxi for two years. Before it was very difficult because he had to rent one, which left him with lower income which wasn't sufficient to provide for his home. Now things have changes because with his own motorcycle taxi he can help his parents with the family's expenses and have a more comfortable life. Carlos will use his loan to repair his motorcycle and give it maintenance. Also, in the future he hopes to buy himself a car to offer taxi service. He is very happy to know that many people will support him with his dream and is thankful for the support of the communal group he belongs to.

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.
