Witress requests her fifteenth loan to be apportioned among Kakakuona, a ten member group. The members of the group will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan. She used the previous credits that she repaid successfully, to buy food cooking ingredients such as rice, beans, sugar, and meats. She opened a new beauty salon business to grow her income. Witress earned a profit which she used to build and cover part of the school fees. She is so happy with Kiva's support. With her new request, she will use it to buy stock of rice and use part of it to buy bricks to build a house and put electricity in her house. She desires to manage a big business.

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.
