This group is called "Cerritos" and is located in Morelos, Mexico. Angelina Sanchez B. is a member of the group. She is 45 years old, lives with her partner, and has two children who are her pride and joy as they are very studious. Angelina is from Morelos and she has been selling cosmetics for eight years. She would like to invest her loan money in the orders that her neighbors, friends and family members make with her since sometimes she doesn't have enough money to cover their orders.

Angelina is currently the president of her group which has nine members. She feels very happy because, through her sales, she is helping to make income for her family and thereby improving her family's quality of life. Angelina is currently taking a course in decorating balloons which she hopes will become another source of income as she will be able to offer a service providing decorations for parties.

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.
