* not pictured
Since 2007, women's self-help groups already have been running. Flamboyan I is the name of this group of 14 members, located in a small suburb called Kroya. There are various types of businesses in this group, especially selling traditional foods such as egg rolls, arem-arem, wet pastel, gethuk lindri, tendril Gesing, and nagasari. There is also a business selling clothes. The members are very closely intertwined in solidarity because they co-exist and complement one another's types of snack foods while getting orders. They meet every month, taking turns hosting the meeting at each member's home. Some plans for this loan are to buy better means of production, and to buy more sophisticated cake molds in order to produce cakes more quickly.

Titi is the leader of this group and she is remarkable because she gives encouragement to other members. She has a small business making food such as wet pastel, dry pastel, and egg rolls. The benefits of the loan from Kiva are very meaningful to her life with her husband and two children. Their relationship is getting warmer because all of her work was done along with her husband. Titi hopes that with the help, she can buy additional tools to increase her production of printed cakes. Also, every member of the Flamboyan group and their families can prosper. In the picture, Titi is holding some goods she has produced.

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.
