Rokia, who is sitting on the far right of the photo, grows rice. With her loan she is is planning to buy fertilizers and pay labor costs for the maintenance of a hectare of land. Once it has been harvested, the crop is sold to a customer base made up of men and women.

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.
