Our members make up the “DOS DE MAYO” (May 2) communal bank. They live in Cusco’s Huanchac district and meet monthly in Arariwa’s offices.

Our featured member is Martha, 43. She is a single mother of two children. She alternates her household chores with retail: she sells nutritional products. She is asking for funds to pay travel costs to buy nutritional products to stock her business.

The other members alternate their activities with retail. Some sell cell phones and accessories, another member is a heavy machinery operator, one has a grocery store and another member sells books and newspapers in a kiosk; two other members are photographers and one sells clothing. All the members seek funding to invest in their various businesses.

The members are grateful for and value the support given them through this means and pledge to repay in a timely fashion.

About Asociación Arariwa
Asociación Arariwa is a large non-governmental organization that started offering microcredit in 1994 to improve the quality of life, skills and equity of the population in the rural Cusco region of Peru. Arariwa serves the southern Andean provinces of Peru, and is distinguished by its efforts to reach the very poor, who often live in isolated rural areas. Arariwa fosters village banking, supports savings accounts, promotes access to education, and empowers women entrepreneurs (who make up 78% of its borrowers).

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.
