This group is called “Responsables de Jalpa” (Responsible Ones of Jalpa) because all of the members are very reliable. The group is located in Mexico. This community is known for its handicrafts. The group is comprised of 11 members.

Leonor C. S. is a member of the group. She is from San Juan Jalpa, and she is 50 years old. She went to school until the third year of high school. She has a total of five children; three of them are dependent upon her. She has lived in this community for 50 years. She works with livestock (raises and sells sheep). She started this activity ten years ago.

The loan she is requesting is to buy feed to fatten the sheep. Her customers say that the sheep that Leoner sells are well taken care of and well fed. This inspires confidence in buying one of her sheep because the customers are sure they are getting a quality product.

Leonor is pleased to request this loan. Little by little she wants to buy more sheep. Upon doing so she will have her own well established farm.

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.
