This present loan will benefit all the small business owners and group members. Nelly, the president of the group, has been a part of Pro Mujer for two years. An employee of the organization visited her at her home, and invited her to a group meeting, where her involvement began. Nelly enjoys the health aspect and benefits of the group and organization. Nelly presently runs a livestock sales business, and also farms potatoes and makes yogurt, activities she learned from her parents.

She plans to use the support from this loan to take care of her livestock and her business (to purchase feed for her animals and seeds for growing crops), and to purchase these products from her local market. She hopes that this investment will help her to strengthen her business and generate more income to help support her family. Nelly is married and has three children.

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.
