Sari Rejeki Group succeeded in repaying its previous loan even though they were one day over the due date. This is due to the inexpensive price of piglets today. Most of the group members raise sows and sell piglets. Because they were selling the piglets at the same time, the price of piglets became cheap. Ni Luh, as head of the group, feels the same thing. Luckily, she has an additional business as a farmer and her husband as a carpenter so that she does not lack for everyday needs. Ni Luh and all members of Sari Rejeki Group agreed to continue lending and changing the methods of raising pigs to increase the selling price. Sari Rejeki Group will resume their borrowing from MUK with an increased loan size. To increase the price of piglets, they changed the method of raising the pigs. Some members still raise sows and the other members raise super quality pigs for fattening or local pigs for pork barbecue. With this method, the sales of pigs will remain in this group only. The members who have sows will sell their piglets to other members who raise pigs for fattening or pork barbecue, and the fattening or pork barbecue will be sold to the big buyer. Ni Luh chose to still raise sows and she will use her loan to purchase feed and renovate the cages. She hopes this new method will work so she and the Sari Rejeki Group can get satisfactory results.

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.
