Since her plantation is going well, she decided to ask for a loan to buy potato seeds to grow on her field. Mrs. Sam S. is a widow with three children, one of whom helps her in the field while another one is employed in a garment factory. The remaining one owns a small restaurant that sells food to passengers. Mrs. Sam S. hopes to increase her income and improve her living conditions with this loan.

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.
