Señora Carmen Rosa is 63 years old, single, and has no children. She is part of the "Mujeres Unidas por Siempre" (Women United Forever) group, which has six members. They are all hard-working and responsible women, characteristics which were necessary to check to create the group.

Señora Carmen Rosa has worked for the past ten years selling food. This work has helped her to cover personal expenses and support her family. She began her business in the doorway of her home, serving few customers. Little by little, people heard about the business and tried her food, and this is how her customer base grew.

She will invest the loan to buy larger quantities of supplies so that it costs her less. She will buy bags of rice and sugar, oil, and any products that do not go off and she can store.

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.
