Antonia is a widow with 3 children in her care. She is the president of the "Divino Niño Jesus" ("Divine Child Jesus") loan group. Antonia sells medicines. She started with very little capital and her business is located in the main square of Chupaca in Huancayo. In the beginning her business was a bazaar. Thanks to her work she was able to complete her college education. Later, thanks to her brothers, who studied pharmacy, she was able to set up what has been until today her pharmacy "El AguiL." ("The Eagle").

Antonia became a widow 25 years ago and took charge of her children. Thanks to her efforts they are now young professionals. Antonia´s wish is for her business to continue to grow so as to be able to support her children through their master's degrees.

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.
