It has become commonplace for housewives in Bali to have pigs to raise as a way of supporting the family in addition to the husband’s income. However, the majority of women have problems raising pigs as they do not know the best way of taking care of them and do not have access to funds. To deal with these issues, they join a group to exchange ideas, information and funding.

Ni Nengah, 38 years old, is head of the Bawi Lestari 1 group who run businesses raising pigs. To increase their funds, Ni Nengah inviteed group members to participate in the loan program for small businesses from MUK. This loan will be used to buy piglets and supplies of pig feed. Within five months, pigs can be sold and the profits obtained from this effort will be used to meet the daily needs of the family.

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.
