This group is called "Pino Suarez", because that is the name of the street in which it is located, in the Mexican state of Hidalgo. Rosa Hernández is a member of this group. She is married and has a 14-year-old son, who is her dependent. Rosa has no education, but she has worked selling sweets and enchiladas outside her home for 21 years. She seeks this loan to buy inputs for her business. She is very happy to get this loan because she will be able to invest and establish more business for the Day of the Dead, as sweets and enchiladas are traditional for this region.

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.
