Anjanne, Maria, and Blanca need loans of 1400, 600, and 1000 soles (3 soles = $1), which they will use to buy fertilizer, seeds, replacement parts for a car, and to pay for one of their children to go to the university.
In the community bank they have learned how to save, be punctual, and be responsible. In addition, they have learned how to work in solidarity with the other associates.
One of the most important aspects of the community bank is the interest earning savings account that each associate has. Anjanne, Maria, and Blanca plan to use their savings to increase the capital available for their businesses and pay for their children’s education. Their goals are to have bigger businesses, buy a house, and enable their children to continue studying.

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.
