Lucía is a member of the 'Río D. Oro' (River of Gold) community bank. She is 40 years old, married, and has 2 children aged 20 and 10. Lucía's business is fattening and raising pigs. She has been doing this for more than 5 years. She buys her pigs at livestock markets, fattens them, and then sells them to butcher's shops. It was one of her aunts who motivated her to start out in this business and it is doing well. She will invest her loan in buying pigs.

Lucía was invited to join Finca Perú by her sister-in-law. This is her third loan cycle. She likes being a member because they give her working capital and she is able to save. She learns from the training sessions that she receives from her advisor. Lucía's dreams are to open a grocery store in her home and for her children to own their own businesses.

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.
