There's no shortage of enterprising women in the country of eternal spring, Guatemala, where women play an important role in countryside work. This is the case of Antonia, who is 28 years old. She has two children, who study at the local school. She is the one in a white blouse with flowers who is the first on the right.

The activity she carries out with so much pride is the production of bananas on the fertile lands of her community. She has been in this business for 20 years and makes a good income for her family. She inherited it from her father, who left it to her so that she could have a better quality of life in the future.

Antonia will use the loan she is requesting to maintain her banana plants so that they produce their fruits, which can then be taken to the markets of the community to be sold.

A group of women decided to join Antonia to get the most benefit out of the land of her community, since it is full of life to grow any agricultural product.

Her dream is to plant more banana plants in the fertile land she has and in this way, she wants to support the environment and earn a living from it for her family so that they can become professionals in the future.

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.
