Beat is the leader of this group of 5 members. She is 65 years old and divorced. She has 8 children who are working and 28 grandchildren, some of whom she pays school dues for. The community she lives in is semi urban.

Some of the challenges are lack of enough space for all her businesses and disease outbreaks, which sometimes kill many of her chickens.

She was able to pay school dues for her children and is now paying for grandchildren. She also constructed 2 chicken houses.

She plans to increase her stock, start rearing pigs, and acquire a bigger piece of land in order to expand her business.

Beat has successfully paid back more than 15 loans.

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.
