Jati Ayu Group
There are several obstacles encountered in developing this kind of business, including limited knowledge of business management as well as limited access to capital. To overcome this problem these borrowers decided to form one group so it's easier to communicate between members of the group and also easier to get funding.
Ni Nengah, 28 years old, is head of the Jati Ayu group for raising pigs. To increase its funds, Ni Nengah invited group members to participate in the loan program for small businesses from MUK. The loan will be used to purchase food supplies and also a sow. Within six months they will have swine babies ready to sell. The profits will be used to meet the needs of families, especially the children's education and also needed family meals.

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.
