Greetings from Peru. This is the “La Unión Hace La Fuerza” [Unity Makes Strength] group, with 8 members. They are in their 5th cycle, and the large majority of them are residents of the area. Julia is a widow and has 3 grown children. At 58 years old, Julia has been able to acheive some of her dreams, such as improving her home and helping her children get an education. Right now she sells gelatin and lollipops outside of a high school. Most of her customers come from the high school. To keep improving her home is her biggest wish. With the loan she asked for, she will buy a stove and some fruit to make her lollipops. The “La Unión Hace La Fuerza” group is grateful and committed to continuing to work well with Programa- Prosperidad. Julia is standing and is the fourth one from the left. She has on a black shirt on and blue pants.

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.
