Jeanne sells goats and has done this business for four years and it is doing well. The majority of the other group members have small shops where they sell items that are commonly used at home such as soap, tea leaves, etc. Jeanne is requesting a loan to buy more goats for sale from which she expects to make profits. With the profits, together with her savings, she plans to build her own family house

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.
