This member belongs to the “Prosperemos- Cusco” (We Shall Prosper- Cusco) communal bank. The bank is in Huanchac District, in Cusco Province and Cusco Department.

The member is Felicitas; she is 46 years old, married, and has three children. She works in her grocery store. Felicitas has her own business on the ground floor of her house. She lives in San Jerónimo District and is very hardworking. She wants to continue supporting her husband and children at home. This is why she opens her store at 6:00 a.m. and waits for the bread man to bring her fresh bread, arranges the entire store and prepares breakfast for everyone in the house. Since her store is next to the dining room, she does not have to leave to watch the store while also taking care of her children.

Felicitas needs the loan at this time to buy basic groceries like rice, oil, sugar and milk.

In the photo there are two members, Marleni and Roxana, who arrived a few minutes after the meeting began and who had prior permission for the delay.

The other communal bank members do work like providing lodging, restaurant services, national police, handicrafts and clothing sales.

Felicitas is grateful for the support given her, and she promises to make her payments in a disciplined manner.

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.
