Sra. Wilma is one of the founders of this group. She provides tailoring services out of the home of her sister, who currently lives in Spain. Wilma wants to acquire more sewing machines for her workshop so that she can provide better opportunities for her family.

Every day, Sra. Eusebia sells ice cream from her cart. When the weather is a bit cold, she sells popcorn. Eusebia and her husband always work very hard so that they can buy a house where they can raise their family. She is a responsible person and one of the more punctual members of the group.

Sra. Ana is new to the Communal Bank, but she is a dynamic person who sells groceries out of her own home. In the evenings, she sells hamburgers and fried chicken. Her family is very proud of her because she is a hard worker.

All of the members are grateful to Emprender and Kiva for demonstrating their confidence in them by providing this 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.
