The Communal Bank Confianza (Confidence) began 12 years ago. Currently it has 20 members and they have been through 38 repayment cycles together. The members tell us that in their Communal Bank they have learned to be responsible, punctual, and to invest in their businesses. They also note that the Communal Bank allows them to save money, which is not possible at home.

The women operate varied businesses selling meat, cheese, chicken, sausage, clothes, snacks, cosmetics, small animals and grains. Some also make breads, proviD. taxi service, and make clothing as well as beautiful woven crafts.

Each member of the group has a different story to tell, as in the case of Rene. Rene makes curtains, liners, sheets and clothing, skills that she learned from her parents. Rene began this business with a machine that was her parents; she maD. small items but did not have adequate space. Currently she has a store and uses industrial sewing machines, enabling her to proviD. different services. Rene mentions that the secret is to treat customers well, give them good prices, and be punctual with orders.

Nancy provides a different example. She sells Omnilife products, and began her business selling to family and friends. With the loan that she received from the Communal Bank, she opened an office. Currently she has promoters and ads on the radio. Her business has grown, but her hope is to reach out to the provinces.

The Communal Bank members need different sized loans; some need 200 soles, 400 soles, 600 soles, 800 soles, or 1000 soles, making a total of 11,600 soles in loans.

The loans will be used to purchase chickens, pigs, turkeys, milk, sugar, rice, shirts, pants, jerseys, blouses, wool, thread, flour, cosmetics, corn, wheat, beans, peas, fabric, and other natural products. The earnings will be used to purchase a house, furnish a home, increase capital and contribute to the education of their children. The group members dream of buying their own land, building a house, growing their businesses, adding branches, buying cars, and seeing their children become professionals with economic stability.

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.
