Gloria is 43 years old and is a single mother of two children. She has worked for the past ten years selling tubers (including potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, onions, etc.) in a rented market stall. Gloria has loyal customers, which has provided income in order to cover her household expenses. In the future she would like to have her own stall in order to be able to sell her tubers and obtain better income. With the loan that she receives she will invest in purchasing more tubers and thus be able to get ahead. Gloria and all of the group members in her team are thankful to Kiva and Kiva partner Edaprospo for the loan offered and for the trust that has been placed in them. Gloria can be seen in the picture in a mustard colored sweatshirt, and she is the first person on the right hand side. She promises to meet all of the proposed goals.

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.
