Jacqueline Tété's Group
A seller of canned goods, trays of eggs and other items for several years, Jacqueline Tété gets her supplies at one of Benin's markets. In order to increase her working capital and respond well to her customer demand, she has requested and received a microloan from Finadev, so that she can increase her inventory and help her children get an education.

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.
