These members belong to the communal bank “Las Amistosas”, which is located in the Urcos district, Quispicanchis province, department of Cusco.

Mrs. Haydee, thirty-two, lives in a common-law marriage and has four children. She sells fruits, like apples, oranges, bananas and grapes. She sends fruits in bulk to places like Puerto Maldonado, and has been doing it for one year now. She had a bar before, but decided to change business because there was a lot of competition in that sector.

Her dream is to have an establishment where she can sell her fruits. She is requesting this loan in order to buy fruits in bulk, such as apples, oranges, bananas and grapes.

The rest of the bank’s members have different lines of work, such as selling food, stockbreeding, selling groceries and selling potato.

Mrs. Haydee thanks all those supporting her dream through Kiva and promises to pay the installments in time.

Arariwa serves the southern Andean provinces of Peru, and is distinguished by its efforts to reach the very poor, who often live in isolated rural areas.

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.
