For a housewife in Bali, it has become commonplace to have pigs at home. They are used to support the family’s income other than the husband's income. Apart from the farming business, something else that could help meet the needs of daily life is to raise livestock, especially pigs.

In development, there are several obstacles faced in developing the business, such as limited knowledge of business management, as well as limited access to capital. To overcome this problem, they decided to join into one group so it would be easier to communicate among members of the group, and the group could more easily get funding.

Ni Nengah is head of the Mutiara group and runs a pig breeding business. To increase the business, Ni Nengah invited group members to participate in loan programs for small businesses from MUK.

Ni Nengah’s loan will be used to buy three piglets and the rest to buy feed. In a period of six months, pigs are ready for sale. The advantage gained from this effort will be used entirely to support the family economy.

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.
