Miriams, age 48, has two children who are dependent upon her and her life partner. Her main business activity is commerce. She has a mini-market, and she also sells new clothes and shoes.

Miriams has been working at this business activity for over 29 years. She says that she has good clientele because she sells clothes and shoes in an itinerant manner, which generates other income.

With the requested loan Miriams will have a better supply of products to meet her customers’ demand. This is because the Christmas season is approaching, and that is a high sales season. It will allow her to get better income to cover the family’s expenses and financial commitments.

One of Miriams’ dreams is to give her children an excellent education and a decent roof over their heads.

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.
