The entrepreneurial bank Kalamarka has worked with our institution since March 31, 2007. The majority of the female participants sell fruit and other food; most of the men are drivers. This bank is notable because men have participated in it from the very beginning; the members are currently 50 percent men and 50 percent women. To date, they have not had any problems because the members are united and organized.
The president of the bank is Adela Durán, who grows and sells fruit. She owns a piece of land in Sapahaqui, and brings her products to sell them directly in the El Tejar and Rodríguez markets. With the loans provided by the institution, she has been able to improve her production using grafting and pest control, which has enabled her to diversify and increase her production, thus earning more money and improving her family's quality of life.
Moisés C. C. is the treasurer. He is a taxi driver who owns his own car, and has been able to use the loans to save up and repair his vehicle. He plans to use this loan to buy another vehicle and improve the quality of life of his family of four.
Lourdes M. H. has a small family of three. She sells food. She will use the loan to buy some bulk and wholesale consumables such as rice, pasta, potatoes, and oil. This will protect her from rising prices so she can increase her earnings in her business.

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.
