The “Grupo la Fe” communal bank is made up of eight members; all women from the Malpaisillo neighborhood, located in the western zone of the country. All of the members are responsible, hardworking women.

Juana Regina is the group’s coordinator and raises and sells pigs from her home. Her routine is to go out to the adjacent communities to look for pigs to raise and sell.

The business was born from a need to have a means of working to help with the household expenses. She is asking for this loan so that she can buy and sell a group of pigs that she can get at a good price. In this way she can take advantage of the Christmas season, when her sales increase.

The “Groupo la Fe” communal bank appreciates the assistance that the Kiva investors are providing to persons of limited means, in poor countries like Nicaragua, so that they can have a means of dignified work.

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.
