She is requesting a loan to buy a stove to prepare tortillas, pork scratchings and “dobladas” (a type of pupusas, eaten at Christmas in Guatemala), as well as to buy some fruits and vegetable to prepare corn flour drinks. She will buy at wholesale Price in order to pay a little less. Her goal is to succeed in helping her husband with the building of their house.

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.
