In this Group: Sara Leonarda, Esther Ruth, Rosario, Rosenda Elizabeth
Sra. Sara Leonarda is 30 years old, married, and finished six years of her primary school education. She is in the retail trade, specifically selling cosmetics. Sara started this business because she did not have a job and had little capital. She has four years of experience to date and receives support for her husband, who is a clothing merchant.

Sara organized a group so that she could request a loan. She will use the money to buy merchandise. By having more inventory, she will have more opportunities to sell and improve her earnings. In the future, she hopes to have a store where she can sell natural medicines.

The other members of the group are also in the retail trade.

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.
