The streets of Sololá illustrate the most eye-catching colours of the typical blouses and belts. No tourist can fail to stop and admire them and even buy one. This is the work of Tomás, who is married with a beautiful family consisting of 2 children - a daughter of 8 and a son of 6, who go to the nearby school in the town where they live. (Tomás is the person wearing a black jacket. He is the second from the left). He has been making casual and traditional clothing for 6 years and he works with great determination and dedication to provide an income for his family. His wife has been a great help to him because she weaves traditional clothing, something she has been doing for some time and this has helped to boost their income. Tomás has become a role model in his town and that is why a group of men and women have joined him to run the business together as it is a good source of income. The loan will be managed by Tomás and will be used to buy merchandise as this will enable him to do his work and boost his earnings. One of his ambitions is to pay for his children's education and see them have professional careers and to build houses for his children so they have adequate living conditions.

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.
