Greetings from Peru! Allow me to introduce you to a group of 5 tenacious women who have shown great initiative in their businesses. Their communal bank is called “Businesswomen from Valle El Triunfo”. One of the members is Gumercinda, who is 41 years old, married, and the mother of 3 children; they are her reason for making progress every day. Gumercinda makes a living selling natural herbs in different markets in the area where she lives, starting very early in the morning. She also makes a living selling food, which she does later in the day. She will use this loan to purchase cooking utensils (pots and ladles). Gumercinda is very happy about the loan, the interest that has been offered, and the confidence that has been placed in her. She promises to keep improving her quality of life and that of her 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.
