In the city of Yaguaron, some 22 kilometers from the Paraguari Office, a group of women meet for the purpose of funding their existing economic activities, or to begin productive activities. They gather to internalize their program, which offers very fruitful and interesting results.

The committee goes by the name of Cerro Guy (Guy Hill), because they are all friends and neighbors, and by means of this undertaking, they fortify the links between them. Presently, they are in their 5th loan cycle. The group is made up of 15 enterprising women who put forth their best efforts to augment their incomes and, as a result, to offer the best to their respective families. All the members are fighters who have invested their loans in their respective activities.

Librada, who sells drinks in a cantina in her house, comments that the loans they obtain by means of the committee, serve her well for supplying her business with merchandise, and her earnings are destined to help her family with household costs, including food, water, lights, and other expenses.

She is applying anew, to buy drinks, including wine, beer, soft drinks, and other items.

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.
