Sofia does chores in her home. She spends the majority of her time with her children and family, but to support her home financially she also raises guinea pigs and chickens, which she sells in her community.
This is her second loan with the communal bank, and she will invest it by purchasing chickens and feed for her animals.

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.
