One of them is Señora Rosa Argentina. She is 40 years old, and has 5 children, 2 of whom are of school age. For the past 14 years, she has dedicated her time to making brushes for washing baby bottles. She learned her business from her brother, who did the same work and who little by little got the whole family involved. She will invest in the necessary materials (nylon, wire, wood, etc.) and her goal is to start up another business, selling clothes.

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.
