Gora, who is seated on the extreme right of the photo with her hand raised, is the lead borrower of this group. She is 45 years of age, and is a married mother of four children (one boy and three girls). She sells fabrics, sheets and dresses, and gets her supplies from other regions in the country to sell them in her town. She has carried out this activity for many years, so has lots of good experience.
Gora plans to use the profit generated by her work to open a cosmetic store in her neighborhood, which she will make available for her son in the future.

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.
