This group is called “El Jardín de Buenavista” (Buenavista Garden) because the ladies all love plants. Besides, across from where they meet there’s a kindergarten (jardín de niños). It is located in the State of Morelos which is a place whose inhabitants very much want to get ahead and who work very hard every day to get ahead and provide better lives for their children.

The group has 11 members and this is the second loan request. María, 47, is one of the members. She only went to elementary school. She’s married and has been raising sheep for the last 10 years. She’s asking for the loan to buy sheep, feed and vitamins for their growth. She mostly sells her products to local neighbors and to people who make barbeque. Her customers comment that they like to buy from her because the feed she gives them guarantees good quality meat. Profits she earns will be used to reinvest so that her business will grow and she can offer her children a better quality of life and schooling for their 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.
