Hilaria, 45, lives on block E in Huaycán. She’s married and has a son. She has been collaborating with Edaprospo for 8 years and for the last four months has been President of the “Virgen D. Copacabana” communal bank which has 15 members also devoted to that Virgin, thus the group name.

Hilaria used to sell cheese occasionally from home and also did cleaning jobs sometimes. But, for the last 5 years she has been working fulltime as a cheese merchant. She brings them from Huarochirí. The quality of the product and capital from Edaprospo has secured a good group of customers and merchandise to supply them. However, she hopes to set up her own store so that she can better support her son’s higher education.

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.
