Good Afternoon! This is the “Mujeres Unidas Por El Progreso” (Women United for Progress) group. It has 10 members who over time have been improving their businesses aiming at providing their families with better quality of life. Betzabet, 35, is a single mother of two children. Seeing that her income was insufficient, Betzabet needed to start a business of her own that would generate improved income. She currently has a store where she sells basic staples. With her dedication and the good customer service she provides she’s acquired a regular clientele. She feels happy because thanks to her business she’s able to support her children’s education. On this occasion she requested the loan to buy panettones for the Christmas season. To continue improving her business is her greatest wish. The “Mujeres Unidas Por El Progreso” group is grateful for the loan provided. Betzabet is seated; she’s first on the left wearing a pink shirt.

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.
