San Bartolo Group
Edna Magali decided to create a group and request a loan, which she plans to use to buy seeds and grow more produce (carrots, beets, radishes, cabbages, etc.). In the future she hopes that her production will increase. The remaining members of the group sell goods, work in stores or are involved in agricultural production.
Decide organizar un grupo y solicitar un préstamo que lo utilizaran para la compra de semillas y tener mas cultivos, zanahorias, remolachas, rábanos, repollos, etc. Espera en el futuro tener mas produccion. Las demás integrantes se dedican al comercio, servicio de tienda y producción agrícola.

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.
