They are kind and courteous people who still maintain their culture and traditions.

One of the members of this group is María Targelia. She has belonged to the credit group Corazones de Turi for three years. She enjoys her credit group because of the team-spirit there is among all of the members. Their unity and solidarity makes the group more solid.

María Targelia is 45 years old, married, and has four children from her marriage. Her two oldest are already married and live on their own, and her two youngest are sixteen and eight years old. One works and her youngest goes to the local school. Her husband works in construction and they own the small house where they live.

María Targelia spends most of her time taking care of her family, but she is always looking for ways to improve her household's financial stability, which is why she works raising pigs, chickens, Guinea pigs, and cattle. She also farms.

She will invest her new loan in the purchase of chickens, Guinea pigs, feed for her animals, and seeds for her crops.

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.
