The Srikandi 1 group is made up of nine women who are neighbors in the same village, Baturiti, in the centre of Bali. The group is seeking a loan of 22,500,000 IDR, and each member will receive 2,500,000 IDR. The group was formed out of these women’s common interest in raising pigs to supplement their family income, and out of their interest in education in best practices for pig-raising. This is their first loan with MUK.

Ni Made, age 48, is the head of the Srikandi 1 group. She is married and her husband earns money as a farmer, but Ni Made would like to help support her family with her pig-raising business. She plans to sell the piglets after six months for use as pork. With the increase in household income, she hopes to be able to buy more pigs.

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.
