Domitila, 35, has a spouse and four children; she’s still supporting three of them. Domitila started out selling 'anticuchos' [grilled, skewered meat] outside her house and gradually saved up and with help from her spouse they decided to start their own business which she now has: a home-based grocery store. She also mentions that on weekends she provides cooking services where she earns extra income for her home.

Domitila feels happy because she’s able to continue helping her spouse with household expenses with her work and to maintain her business. Her wish is to continue growing in her business. The loan she requested will be used as working capital; she will buy soft-drinks, beer and groceries.

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.
