Greetings from Peru! This is the “Compañeros de San Martin de Porres” group.

Zonia, 52, lives with her three children, her husband and a granddaughter. Aiming at helping with family income, she decided to start a business of her own. She’s had an optician’s shop for 20 years where she sells a variety of items like sunglasses, made-to-order eyeglasses and contact lenses.

Sonia works in her store every day and in her free time sells beauty products which produce extra income. Her goal is to continue improving her business and loans are important for this purpose. On this occasion she will use it to buy accessories for eyeglasses.

She hopes to continue improving her optician’s shop to win over more customers. It makes Zonia happy to know that people from all over the world are supporting her in her business, especially the lenders she’s very grateful to. Zonia’s wearing a turquoise sweater.

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.
