126 Grace Group
Sri sells fried snacks, such as sausage spring rolls, at a private school near her house. She started this business four years ago, and it is going very well; she earns up to 150,000 IDR a day.
Sri will use this loan to buy a stove and purchase additional ingredients like sausage, spring rolls, corn, and chicken. Sri enjoys her work because cooking is her hobby.
Sri and the other members of the "126 Grace" group are requesting financial support from VisionFund Indonesia for the third time so that they can increase their working capital. Sri hopes one day to send her child to school in Saudi Arabia.

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.
