The "Cristo Campesino" community bank is located in the village of Huacaytaqui, province of Quispicanchis, department of Cusco, Peru. One of the members is Vicentina, a 40-year-old divorced mother of two children. She runs a small general store, selling primary-need products such as sugar, rice, milk and other items. She also sells notebooks, erasers and all kinds of school supplies. Her store has been in the San Sebastián neighborhood in the city of Cusco for the past six years. Vicentina travels constantly to her native Huacaytaqui and leaves her children in charge of the store when she is away. She is requesting the loan to purchase primary-need products and in this way stock her store. The other members of the community bank make a living in teaching, raising small animals, farming, raising livestock, selling bread, selling candy, providing dry-cleaning and laundry service, and raising animals to fatten and then sell. The members value and are grateful for the loan and promise to make their payments on time.

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.
