In this Group: Jose, Maria, Maria
This support group is made up of three good-hearted, hardworking people trying to help their families.

Jose, one member, is a man of character, who works very hard powered by the love of his family. It is very important to Jose to teach his children to live with values such as honesty, modesty, and responsibility. His community appreciates these values in him and he is well-respected for the sacrifices he makes to help his family get ahead. Above all, he seeks to teach his children to be good people.

Jose is requesting this loan in order to buy onion and bean seeds, as well as organic fertilizer. His land is already plowed and ready for planting. Jose is an experienced farmer who knows how to get the most out of his land.

His dream is to buy another plot of land on which he can grow other crops. By doing this, he will be able to pay for his children to go to a university so they can become professionals in the field of agriculture and contribute to the growing knowledge in this area.

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.
