Chillán is a town in the southern area of central Chile. The name means "chair of the sun" in mapudungun, the language of our indigenous people, the mapuches. Chillán is known as the "cradle of the country" and a "land of artists," because many prominent characters from the history of Chile were born here, such as the famous pianist Claudio Arrau, for example.

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.
