San Isidro Group
In this Group: Teresa, Adriana, Cristina
Teresa (in the center of the photo) is a 57-year-old woman who lives with her husband in Sololá. She and her husband have seven children, one of whom is still in school, and they both contribute financially toward supporting their family.

Teresa's business is producing woven ikat fabric which is used to make the traditional women's skirts that people in her community wear. She learned this work a number of years ago from some people she used to work with.

Teresa has been working independently with her own capital for two years. As she makes good profits, she would like to continue investing capital in her business so that she can continue producing this type of fabric.

Teresa is the representative of her group and is requesting a loan to expand her business. She will buy yarn and dyes to use in her work. The other members of the group (the two women on either side of Teresa in the photo) have businesses buying and selling casual clothing. Some of this loan will be used to buy a wider range of clothing and increase sales.

These three ladies have a common goal: to continue investing so that their business become larger in the future and they can make more income for their families.

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.
