Greetings from Perú! This is the “Unidas para Alcanzar el Éxito” (United to Achieve Success) group.

María, 56 years old, is one of the members of the group. She works providing a cleaning service for the municipality of her district. On the other hand she also works selling food products like nougat and different sweets. Her work allows her to contribute to the family expenses. In the future she would like to dedicate herself solely to this work, for that she will look for a suitable place where she will set up her business.

The requested loan will be very useful to her in purchasing her sweets. In this way she will seek to supply her customers who consume the sweets that she sells. María is very grateful for her loan, especially to the Kiva lenders that help her whole communal bank.

María is dressed in green clothes and a green cap.

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.
