Donata M., 53, started selling soft-drinks 13 years ago. Through much effort she managed to secure a spot to sell in La Ceja (main commercial thoroughfare) in the city of El Alto where she works four days a week from 9:30-16:00 hours. She has 7 children 6 of which are independent; she only has one minor left at home who is dependent on her. Donata loves selling and this is her only source of income. She needs financing to buy kisa (dehydrated peach), an ingredient used to prepare juices; she wants to buy a quintal (a weight measure equal to 46 kilos.) Donata likes the training sessions that Pro Mujer imparts because they are an opportunity to learn; she also appreciates the health services they offer. Her fellow members, like Donata, have different economic activities like the sale of lamb meat, laundry sevices, sale of beauty accessories, transportation, watch sales, and prepared meal sales. They all need financing to increase their working capital.

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.
