Periquitas (Flat) Group
Paula sells shoes and underwear by catalogue and on a door-to-door basis in her community and nearby villages. For five years she has been in business helping her husband cover household expenses and providing the basic needs for their three children.
She says she enjoys her work because it allows her free time and has provided her with good friendships. A loan from VisionFund and Kiva will give Paula the opportunity to expand her business by buying more catalogues, shoes and underwear. Paula's additional income will allow her to give her family a better lifestyle.

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.
