Mary, a 40-year-old married woman with seven children between the ages of 8 and 20, became a tailor and clothing seller in 1988. Working everyday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., she can earn a monthly profit of about $350 from her sales.

Mary now hopes for a loan to buy more tailoring items for her business. She will share this loan with her subgroup members, who have businesses selling maize, animals, groceries, and bananas respectively.

Additional Information

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.
