In Bali it has become commonplace for housewives to raise pigs at home to supplement their husband's income. Apart from farming, another thing that can help meet the needs of daily life is to raise livestock, especially pigs. There are several obstacles faced in developing the business, such as limited knowledge of business management as well as limited access to capital. To overcome these problems they decided to join into one group so it's easier to communicate among members of the group and more easily get funding.

Ni Wayan, 30, is head of the Rejasa group and runs a pig breeding business. To grow the business, Ni Wayan invited group members to participate in loan programs for small businesses from MUK. This loan will be used to buy three piglets and pig feed. In a period of five months, the pigs will be ready for sale. The profits gained from this effort will be used entirely to support the family economy.

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.
