View original language description ↓
The Morochucos community bank is a group of partners from a number of towns, such as Chanquil, and Papachacra. All of the partners work in the cheese industry in Cóndorccocha, where cars stop on their way to the south of Ayacucho.

Lidia H. has a cheese business, selling approximately 200 cheeses each day. Lidia also buys cereals and fruits to sell in Ayacucho. Lidia wants to strengthen her already successful business so that she can earn enough for her children to continue studying and become professionals. Lidia's dream is to purchase land and move her family to the city of Ayacucho to give her children better opportunities. At the Community Bank Lidia learned to save, to love herself, and to value herself as a person.

Sonia Alarcón sells cheese every day. She also sells shoes and clothing, as well as notebooks during the school year. Sonia wants to improve her grocery store so that she can help her children continue their education. Sonia would like them to become professionals, as she herself never had the opportunity to finish school. She thinks that life holds many surprises, but Sonia knows that with her savings she and her son can get ahead. Sonia used to think that only men attended school, but now she’s seen that women can also work hard and come out on top.

Bertha C. owns two small stores. She also sells cheese and buys cereals. Bertha would like to improve her store so that she can send her children to school so that they become professionals. Bertha wants to save to secure her business. She says, “Sometimes luck doesn’t last long in a business. At the community bank I learned to save, to love myself and to value myself as a person. I also take out loans without people speaking badly of me”.

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.
