Greetings from Peru! This group is “Las Emprendedoras.”

Maritza is one of its members. She has a spouse and five children living with her. Her spouse works in construction and contributes economically. Maritza has a grocery store at home; she started the business encouraged by her daughter. She used money from her severance package to buy some display cases and shelving to start the store. She started out selling soft-drinks and a few snacks and gradually increased stock adding more products until it became one of the best-stocked stores; it’s visited by neighbors and friends who are her best customers. The loan Maritza is requesting will serve to buy food items to increase business. Later on she wants to enlarge the store so she can tend to more local customers. Maritza is grateful for the support and she’s the first one on the left and is wearing black.

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.
