Gañaloma Communal Bank is made up of 7 female and 1 male members who live in the town of Nabon, a cool-weather region surrounded by high mountains and beautiful landscapes where people mostly work in agriculture and cattle raising while others travel to the city to work for a wage, thus being able to support their families. The inhabitants of this town are kind and gentle and have as their biggest treasure to preserve their culture and customs.

One of this group's members is Aida, who's taking her first loan with her friends and fellow members of the beautiful Gañaloma Communal Bank, which she also presides. Aída is 26, married and has 4 children ages 10, 8, 6 and 3. The first three attend a local school. Her husband is a construction worker and they live in their own house.

Aída spends her days taking care of her household but she wants to do more and help her husband with the household expenses. She works in agriculture, growing several crops and selling them within the community. She reserves some for her family, too. Additionally, she raises and sells chickens, lambs, cuyes, porks and hens. On top of it, she attends school during the weekends because she wants to be an inspiration for her children.

She will invest the money of this loan in the purchase of chicken, cuyes, food for animals and school supplies for her and her children. Her goal is to graduate from school and increase her animal raising business.

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.
