She owns a small plot of land on which she can cultivate rice for a living. In her plantation, she now faces an obstacle because the soil is infertile and has led to declining crop yields. To deal with this problem, Mrs. Peon E. has decided to ask for a loan to buy fertilizers to better support the field.

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.
