The “Banca de Emprendimiento Castillito de Arena” is a new bank where its members are involved in different things, including food sales. Its members are close and know each other very well. Claudia is the group’s president and sells socks and candy from her stall in a very well known La Paz fair. Having lived carefully for the past 20 years, amid life’s difficulties, she has learned to get ahead with her husband’s backing. She will use the money from this loan to buy merchandise, like socks in bulk. She wants to eventually buy some land where she can have a house built, because it’s risky to live where she lives now. She is a hard working woman who is very grateful to the institution for the support it has given.

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.
