This group is called “Flamingoes” and is located in the state of Puebla in Mexico. The group is comprised of 11 members, and this is the first time they request a loan. Florina is one of the members; she dedicates herself to selling hogs, a business she started 10 years ago.

She requests this loan to buy more animals to raise and later sell. She studied up to the third grade, is married and has 3 children. At the time of making this request for a loan, she is enthusiastic about the opportunity it gives her to grow her business and succeed.

She would like this loan to buy more animals since she already has commitments for them. This brings her more income, which will allow her to provide a better standard of living for her children and to offer them an education so they can enjoy brighter futures and meet any goals they set for themselves. Note that the woman who is difficult to see in the picture is named Alejandra.

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.
