Jonathan's group is made up of three men. This group's president is 21-year-old Jonathan who is single and has a 3-year-old son. He lives in San Gabriel with his parents and his son. He considers himself to be a very hard-working person.

Jonathan works with his parents in an upholstery business. He started working when his son was born as he needed to care for him and support him. This is the first loan that he has requested from Fodemi and he will use it to buy leather for making upholstery. This will help him to improve his productivity and his income.

Jonathan's dream is to be able to have more branches of his business so that he can improve his income and thereby provide for his son.

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.
