Walter, 28, is single living in his mother’s house located in the community of Paso de Vela in south Honduras. His activity for the last two years has been selling new clothes from place to place; his customers are all his neighbors in the community. Walter is asking for a 5,000 Lempira loan to buy new clothes like suits, t-shirts, bath sandals, fragrances, blouses, pants and shorts to earn higher profits because his sales improve during the last months of the years. With support from this loan, Walter wants to continue investing in his business and continue growing like his fellow group members who sell tortillas and groceries; they are Hilda and Soany who also live in the village of Paso de Vela in south Honduras. Walter’s dream is to stock a wider selection and to have his own locale and to provide better customer service.

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.
