The members of the Pedgregal community bank live in the town of Chifla, some 3 1/2 hours from Cusco, in the Peruvian province of Paruro.


The group has 10 members who make a living raising livestock and farming. They buy and sell cattle and smaller animals and keep birds. They buy young animals, then fatten and breed them so that they can sell what the animals produce for a higher return. They also work at farming, spending more or less time at it depending on the time of year. They still work the land in the traditional way, planting maize, various kinds of potatoes, green vegetables, barley, wheat and other products. They need the loan so that they can buy cattle and some smaller animals, along with seeds to sow their fields.


Our members are very grateful for the help that the receive and are committed to repaying the loan within the agreed-upon time.

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.
