Bali is a tourism island, but looking at particular districts we will see that there are so many rural communities dependent not only on tourism, but on breeding animals and farming as well. This female group in Sigaran village, central Bali, joined MUK to get a loan, uniquely for Pig breeding.

Ni Made, as a housewife in Bali, is used to keeping pigs at home to support the family's income, on top of her husband's income. But the problem is most of the group do not know the correct way of raising pigs. To improve their skills, they formed a group. In addition to exchanging information, they also apply for loans. Ni Made, 41 years old, become the head of the Sigaran Indah group to enhance their capacity in terms of raising pigs and raising capital for the business. The loan proposed by the group Sigaran Indah will be used to buy two superior piglets, and the rest spent on buying feed. In a period of 6 months, the pigs will be ready for sale. The profits gained from this effort will be used entirely to support the economy 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.
