María, 37, lives in south Honduras with her two children and her husband who backs her up in all of her commitments. Her business is selling tortillas, an activity she started 7 years ago at home. Her business has a location that’s easily accessible for each one of her customers since it’s on her neighborhood’s main street and this leads to high demand.

María needs the loan to buy lime powder, corn, firewood and a pan. The impact she expects from the loan is to meet customer demand since she will buy enough product to respond to demand from all of her customers who start coming by starting very early in the morning.

Her future plan is to continue growing in her activity so that she can provide her children with a better education and in order to have a better quality of life.

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.
