Kadia, pictured on the far left, will use her part of the loan to buy food supplies to use in her catering business. She will buy three sacks of flour, two 20-liter cans of oil, a bag of onions and other essential ingredients.

The women buy their supplies in San and the surrounding villages. They sell prepared dishes in San to both men and women customers.

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.
