This group is called "Las Vecinas" (The Neighbors). It is made up of 10 customers.

One member of this group is Noemí. She is 37 years old and has two sons, who are 14 and 12, and a 10-year-old daughter. She tells us that about seven years ago she decided to start her business selling sweets. She began it in the State of Mexico, and thanks to her family's support her business has grown. Unfortunately she and her husband separated, but now her earnings help her to cover the family's expenses, so she is not as worried about providing for her children and hopes to help them go to college in the future.

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.
