This small bank is called "Santa Catalina de Sillacancha" after one of the patron saints of the community of Sillacancha in the village of Calca, Cusco province, located 1 hour and 30 minutes from the city of Cusco. This community is in the sacred valley of the Inkas.

This bank is made up of seven women and five men who are mainly farmers. This area has a hot climate and is fertile, where the main crops are corn, potato, vegetables and such, as well as a variety of fruit. The members of the bank will invest the loan in the purchase of fertilizers and products such as seeds for the new sowing season, before working the soil so the fields can be resown. Many of them are also merchants: they bring their fruits and vegetables to different places in the region as well as making delicious marmelades from their fruit, without the use of preservatives. They make 100% natural products.

The members value and are grateful for the loan: because they are in the countryside they do not have access to traditional banks. They are committed to repaying the loan on schedule and have pledged their support to the members who want to progress.

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.
