'People who are keen to make progress' is how the members of the 'Cruz de Yerbateros' group describe themselves. This group has seven [female] members who find a way to make income for their households and families through their businesses.

This is the case of 41-year-old Flor de María who is married and has two dependent children. For more than seven years, she has been selling iced treats in the summer and 'emoliente' (a local drink) in the winter. She works as hard as she is able in order to get ahead in life for the good of herself and her family. In the future, she would like to have a much better equipped ice cream parlor. She will use her loan to stock up with merchandise, buying products for the winter season. In common with Flor De María, the other members of the group each have their own personal story. However, what they all have in common is the effort and hard work that they put in every day for the good of their families.

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.
