Pleasant Greetings. This is a new group called, “Los Amigos Empresarios” and is made up of six enthusiastic members who began working with the Prosperidad Program. Marianela, one of the members, is 55 years old, married, and has two children; one of them still depends on her for support. She has been selling fast food, such as hamburgers, broasted chicken, and chicken soup, for more than a year. She started this business because she wanted to improve her quality of life, so she has to work a lot.

She used the money from her most recent loan to buy ingredients such as chicken, hamburger meat, potatoes, and cooking oil for her business. Her greatest desire is to set up a fast food stall in a central location. The new group, “Los Amigos Empresarios,” is grateful to the Kiva lenders. Marianela is the first one on the left of the photograph, wearing an orange polo shirt.

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.
