Prisma funds smaller than average loans for micro-entrepreneurs to help them grow businesses in urban and rural areas. To improve living conditions in Honduras, the organization strives to empower women who lack access to traditional financial services, and promotes solar panels to deliver clean, affordable electricity to rural areas.

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.
