Hello from Peru! This is the group "Mujeres Decididas e Independientes" [Determined and Independent Women]

Yris is thirty-two years old, is married, and has one nine-year-old son. She lives with her mother. Yris works in selling handicrafts that she makes, like embroidery, cards, and fantasy jewelry. Her friends and neighbors always ask for the items that she makes. Thanks to the income she makes, she can help to sustain her family.

Yris is going to use this loan to buy materials for her business. She dreams of having a much larger business and of improving the quality of her handicrafts so that she can export them.

Yris is very happy in knowing that many people throughout the world will be helping her business. To the investors of Kiva, she says: "Thank you!" In the photo, she is the first on the left, seen in a green and white striped 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.
