The group is made up of 10 members, one of whom is María Yesenia J. P.. She began her business making cheese five years ago. She is currently requesting a loan to purchase essential ingredients like salt, whitener and rennet to make cheese.

María is 23 years old, has completed three years of high school, is single and has no children. Her customers are happy with her because her cheese is very tasty, and she treats her customers with kindness.

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.
