Luzviminda dreams of becoming a successful livestock farmer. She works hard to attain this to improve her family's living standard. She is already 41 years old and married with three school-aged children. Her husband is a farmer who tills a rice and corn field. Farming has been their main source of income.

She raises pigs for fattening and sale, which is her family's alternative source of income to support the studies of her children. It is very helpful when there are emergencies. She is asking for a loan of PHP 12,000 as additional capital to buy feed and medicines for her piglets. Some of the loan will also be used to buy fertilizers for their farm. After two years of raising pigs, Luz had proven that this business is very helpful for her family needs.

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.
