The Marca Valle cooperative bank starts its second cycle with 13 members from the district of Lircay, located in the Huancavelica region. The principal activity in this community is agriculture (potatoes, beans, and corn). Leona is a member of the Marca Valle cooperative bank, serving on the executive committee this cycle in the role of Secretary. She is married, and has 4 children, two boys and two girls, who are studying at the local school.

Leona has worked since she was a girl, as she was orphaned at a young age. Initially, Leona sold cheese and eggs and now, thanks to the additional capital from the loans, she dedicates herself to selling meat and livestock. She gives thanks for the loans she has received, because they have allowed her to save and to make her payments on schedule. Leona needs a loan to purchase 2 calves that she will raise until they’re ready to sell, which probably would not be until November. Leona works very hard, as she wants her children to complete their studies and become professionals. Her dream is to see her cows grow strong and become milk-producing.

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.
