The communal bank "Mujeres Emprendedoras" started up as a result of promotions that were done in their neighborhood. All of the members of this group are from the same neighborhood; they are friends and neighbors. Their goal is to work together to develop a spirit of solidarity, and to rise to the highest level of the program. Maria is one of the members of this group. She has a business selling chipas (cheese filled buns, a traditional Paraguayan snack) which is doing very well, because these are consumed at all hours of the day and during every season of the year. Her goal is to be able to have a big place where she could offer her products for sale.

Maria is requesting a loan to buy chipas. With these, she will be able to continue working, and in this way help her family with the daily household expenses.

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.
