In this Group: Legi, Atikah, Lina, Devi, Sitie, Emi
For the past six years Legi, a 49-year-old married mother of four children, has been selling Yakult (a probiotic milk-like product made of skimmed milk which is very popular in Indonesia) in her mobile store. With many loyal customers, she uses the income to support her family and pay her children's school fees.

Legi will use her portion of the loan to buy more Yakult to sell in her community. She plans to grow her business and develop other enterprises as her income grows. She also wants to buy a motorcycle to facilitate her sales as well as save money to pay for her daughter's college tuition this year.

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.
