They are a group of women who organized in 2008. They currently work at different economic activities such as commerce (buying and selling clothes, shoes, and other things), raising animals (hens, pigs, cows, sheep, etc.), and services (construction, field work, and laundry, among others).

The people who provide services have secondary activities like raising animals. They do this to improve their income. The intention of the other two activities is to diversify their products to improve the incomes that they currently have.

It has been determined that all of them are engaged in economic activities that will enable them to pay back the 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.
