Renacer Ayarmaca Group
The Ayarmaca community is located in the province of Urubamba, in the Chinchero district of the Dept. of Cusco, which is located 45 minutes from the city of Cusco, by way of unpaved road.
The members are rural women, who engage in the breeding and trade of young animals like guinea pigs, chickens, and pigs. They buy them at town fairs (for example, guinea pigs cost S/8.00 and sell them in the city of Cusco for S/.12.00).
The loan is a service that they value because it allows them to increase capital and creates greater possibilities of regulating cash flow from the family unit. They value the minimum requirements, the delivery and the repayment of the loan in their community. As in most cases, the valuation of savings is very important.

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.
