They farm a variety of products in this area of the country, such as a varieties of potato, corn, wheat, barley, sweet potato, oca (a starchy tuber), and vegetables. Our members need a loan to be able to invest in buying a large number of seeds and fertilizer for their land and to buy some calves to fatten and sell as well as make dairy products from the milk and other small business sales. Here 8 members are dancing for the de Qoylloriti, which is a snow-capped mountain, which historically the Incas have provided homage to for being part of their God, providing them water.

The members are grateful for the loan and they promise to repay it in its entirety within the established timeframe.

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.
