The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Margot.

She lets it be known that she learned this business three years ago watching her sister-in-law who has the same kind of business.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy vegetables in one of the city of El Alto’s street markets to then resell them in her sales space.

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.
