Ana has told us that she has learned this activity form her mother, working at her side since she was 10 years old. Since she was very young she has therefore practiced this craft activity, and she now engages in weaving typical handmade textiles. She is requesting a loan to buy thread in larger quantities in order to save some money and to supply herself with materials she needs to keep on working.

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.
