Angélica, 51 years old, is a single mother with one child. She sells cereals at the “12 de Abril” market. During the holiday season, she also bakes breads and makes typical jams.
Hayde is a 59 years old widower with two children. She sells second hand clothes at the different regional fairs.
Angélica and Hayde need loans for 800 and 200 soles, respectively, which they will invest in the purchase of barley, wheat, garbanzo beans, lentils, and second hand clothes.
The dreams of Angélica and Hayde are to see their children become professionals, to own a house in the city’s downtown and to have their own capital.

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.
