The members of the "Confines del Sur" communal bank are from Angol, which is two hours south of Temuco, in the Araucanía region. Temuco is 670 kilometers south of Santiago, Chile's capital, and it has several lakeside resorts and very showy flora and fauna. It's worth noting that this area is home to 50% of Mapuche, an indigenous people of Chile.

Most of the members sell new and used clothing. Some sell groceries and vegetables in the markets, some tend to sales stalls, bookstores, barbershops.

Noemí is the president of the communal bank. In the photo, she is the only blonde in the first row. She sells underwear and young adult clothing door-to-door; she also makes souvenirs for events like graduations, baptisms and weddings.

Noemí will use the funds to buy clothing to sell. Her 7-year-old daughter, who is the motivating force in her life, lives with her. Her dream is to have an established store in her home so that she can reach a better quality of life. For Noemí, Fondo Esperanza has meant an opportunity and the tools to surge ahead.

In the group meetings, clients receive training though the FE Entrepreneurship School, which enhances clients’ personal and business skills and ability to work in groups.

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.
