Tunka Group
In this Group: Placida, Ivaneth, Maria, Monica Diana, Cristina, Teresa, Dionicia, Arminda , Rosario
The women of the Tunka community bank live in the Achumani area on the Achumani plain. This is their seventh loan cycle. The board of directors organizes and oversees the loan payments. They meet on the Achumani plain. Most of the members are housewives who have known each other for many years; all of them come well-recommended and are responsible and punctual in their payments.

Placida is the bank's president. She sews lovely skirts and petticoats, and she has many clients in the area, where there are festivals almost every week. With this loan, she will buy cloth to fulfill various orders. She is a hard worker, which is why she was chosen as the group's president.

All members of the bank work in trading and service. They are all using the loans to increase their working capital. They are very grateful to microfinance partner Emprender for placing its trust in them.

The man in the photo is the husband of one of the members.

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.
