The “Imperio” (Empire) communal bank has ten members: 8 women and two men. The bank president is Ramona, 35. She has three children aged 5, 7, and 11 years. She works building doors and furniture with her husband who is a carpenter. Ramona’s carpentry shop is located in the city of Santa Cruz’s Cenetrop zone. She’s been in this line of work for 15 years already having learned the occupation from her father who was also a carpenter.

This loan will be her first sequence in the institution and Ramona will use it to buy lumber to build doors. The reason for requesting this loan is the lack of capital needed to buy this work material because without it Ramona would be unable to manufacture the doors.

The business challenge Ramona faces is to move out of poverty. She will use profits to improve her quality of life since this is the only activity she has that makes it possible for her to support herself and her family. Because of this, she feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support provided.

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.
