José is the coordinator of the group. He's 34 years old and has two sons, ages 10 and 12. José makes a living making and sewing garments. He lives in the Sewenkani area. This is José's second loan with the institution and he's going to use it to buy fabric, thread, and other things for his business.

Julia makes a living selling candied peanut sweets. She'll invest in buying peanuts by the quintal to make the sweets. Her reason for requesting the loan is the lack of cash, which doesn't let her grow in her business. This is a challenge because the customers are small producers and she has little capital.

They want to grow more in their businesses, and they're going to use the profits to continue buying material and supplies so the businesses grow and they can have a better quality of life.

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.
