San Antonio De Jicamarca Group
This is the case with Virginia, a 63 year old member. She is married and has eight children, one of whom she continues to support. With the desire to improve financially, Virginia started her own business of raising pigs. She started out working on a farm where they raised said animals. With the knowledge and experience that she got, she decided to undertake said business.
She has now been working this way for over 16 years. With the fruits of her effort she has been able to help her children get ahead. She used her last loan to buy balanced feed for her animals. Virginia’s greatest wish is to see her children become professionals.
The San Antonio De Jicamarca group is grateful for the loan that was granted because it makes progress possible.

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.
