Tenin (the first person standing on the left in the picture) is well known by everyone in town for the smoked and fresh fish that she sells. She plans to use her loan to buy 3 boxes of smoked fish and 5 boxes of fresh fish. She gets her supplies from the wholesalers in San.

Thanks to this loan, Tenin hopes to make an average monthly profit of 20 000 francs which will be reinvested in her business and used to take care of the household needs.

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.
