The “Flor de Tulipan” (Tulip Flower) Communal Bank is starting its first cycle in the Cascada Community Center. We could say that the group has a lot of expectations regarding the loan. This group is comprised of nine members, eight women and one man. The head of the board of directors is Ana, the president.

Ana, age 40, is married and has four children. This is her first cycle with this group. She says that six years ago she participated as a member of another group in the Cascada Community Center. Now her challenge is taking on the responsibility of being the president.

She has worked on a loom weaving blankets of vicuña wool for four years. Her sister-in-law taught her. The 1,000 Bs. loan that she requested is to buy vicuña wool fleece. It will be spun and transformed into a blanket. The work goes further. She has help from a woman who makes macramé for the blankets.

Regarding the ongoing businesses of the rest of the group’s members, they have businesses like: weaving blankets and sweaters, a stocked store, raising pigs and chickens, selling aprons, selling food, weaving bedding, weaving vicuña blankets, and weaving macramé bags.

Additional Information

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.
