8 De Diciembre Group
One of the members of this committee is Dora whose business is selling 'chipas' (cheese buns - a traditional Paraguayan food). This provides her with the resources she needs to help her family. She describes herself as a very hard-working and entrepreneurial woman who works as hard as she can every day so that she can continue growing as a small businesswoman.
Dora is requesting a loan to buy starch, cheese, butter, eggs and other supplies she needs for making 'chipas'. This will help her to continue making progress.

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.
