One of the group members is Emelia. She is taking out her first loan with her friends and fellow members of the Majesty's group. She is 32, married, and has three children, ages 6, 4, and 2. They live in their own home.
Emelia is an expert wax-print seller with eight years experience. She learned this from her mother when she was 20, and she resorted to this trade in full when she got married. She works Monday to Friday without a fixed schedule.
The money from this loan will be invested in the purchase of more wax-print to sell so that she can reach her goal of expansion.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
