Señora Maria is married, 35 years old, and didn't have the chance to study. She has eight children, four of whom are studying.

She makes a living raising animals, in particular broiler chickens. She set up this business when she got married, because she needed another income to help her husband with household expenses. Today, she has ten years of experience, and is supported by her husband who works as a day labourer.

Maria is organising a group to request a loan, which she will use to buy broiler chickens. In the future, she hopes to own a large broiler chicken farm. The other members of the group make a living raising animals and doing business.

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.
