The Sabiduría II Communial Bank is a bank that was started recently with 27 members. Some of the members were invited by members of other communal banks and others were invited by the promoters.

The members have different businesses such as selling fish, fruits, handicrafts, vegetables, groceries, cosmetics by catalog, spare parts and clothing. They sell in different markets in the city of AyaC., in their homes and some sell by traveling from place to place.

The members need loans of different amounts. Some loans are for 300 soles or 600 soles but make up a grand total of 12,600 soles in loans from the communal bank.

The loans will be used to purchase tomatoes, carrots, onions, sugar, rice, pasta, cooking oil, perfumes, paint, fish, spare parts, sweaters and coats.

The dreams of the members are to grow their businesses, have their own home, buy nice things and that their children become professionals.

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.
