Flor De Papa Group
The group pictured above has come together and organized themselves well. They are presently requesting a loan which they plan to put towards the purchase of input products for planting their potato crops. With this investment, they plan to buy seeds, manure, insecticides, and other items, which they hope will help them to increase their potato production, sales and overall income. All of the group members make a living farming potatoes.

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.
