Greetings from Peru! We introduce the group Pequeños Empresarios [Small Business Owners].

Rosa is one of the members. She is married and has 7 children, 5 of whom are grown while the youngest 2 remain in her care and are still in school. With the goal of supporting them she has different jobs. She cleans houses, but her main job is preparing food for events. She offers her services for different gatherings like weddings, birthdays and social parties. Her neighbors and friends know of her services and contract them frequently. She invests the income from her job in her children's studies.

Rosa wants to have a stable business and so she has begun selling snacks. This loan will be a big help because she will be able to buy a cart to sell her products. Rosa is very excited because she knows that people from all over the world are going to support her business and she is very grateful.

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.
