This group is called “Señor De Wimpillay Chocco” and it meets every thirty days in Cusco’s Santiago district, in a crowded neighborhood called Wimpillay (Cusco, Perú). The communal bank stands out for being composed of hard working people, professionals, artisans and merchants. The group has 12 members and they have asked for several loans from Asociación Arariwa. They will use the money to improve their businesses.

We met Isabel at the meeting. She told us that she lives in Cusco’s Wimpillay neighborhood with her spouse and three children. Since a very young age she distinguished herself by being a very responsible and kind person and because of this her neighbors invited her to participate in the communal bank.

Isabel has a small grocery store at home where she sells items at accessible prices to her customers. On this occasion, she needs the loan to buy more merchandise to stock her store and have different basic need items on hand, for example, jars of milk.

She is 43 years old and is a person with a strong desire for self improvement and to have a business that succeeds every day always with the intention of providing the best for her family. Her dream is to see her children become professionals.

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.

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.
