MWINASSO group’s members' first objective is to make profit through business, and secondly, mutual aid. Usually they buy their merchandise at the main market before taking it to local markets for retail. The first loan that they are seeking will allow them to buy some cartons of soap, two cartons of milk, some cell phone credit cards, toothpaste, and grains. This loan will support their business activities and they will also be able to participate in their respective family’s spending with the profits they will earn.

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.
