Las Chicas Superpoderosas Group
Maria Bernardina R. is dedicated to selling "chipas" (typical Paraguayan dough made from a base of cheese and starch). She formed the group with the purpose of expanding her work. At the same time, she now will undertake the sale of not only chipa, but also empanadas and Paraguayan soups (corn-based) so she can improve her income and the education of her children.
All of the members of the committee hope to be able to count on the help of Kiva since they are hopeful that, one day, they will overcome the poverty in which they find themselves.

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.
