Nueva Esperanza - Tipon Group
In this Group: Fortunata, Maximiliana, Maria, Tomas, Silvia, Augusto, Dorotea, Simeona, Ambrocia, Carlota, Apolinaria, Roger, Teofilo, Manuel Exaltacion, Teresa
These partners form the communal bank "Nueva Esperanza - Tipon" (New Hope - Tipon). The majority of them were born here in the community of Tipon, located 25 minutes from the city of Cusco.

The members split their work between home and their restaurants, selling local dishes like baked guinea pig with tallirin. Two of the partners have a chicken restaurant. They have businesses on land with much greenery, located outside the city, so they converted them to country restaurants. They are in scattered locations where every weekend families go to enjoy local dishes like baked or smoked trout, chicken soup, mixed soup, corn soup, and corncobs with cheese. These members have another attraction, the tourist complex of Tipon, which, in the era of the Incas, was a ceremonial center dedicated to water. They worshiped the water as part of a great deity, comprised of fountains and canals that continue to flow after all these years down the slopes of Pachatusan hill ("mainstay of the world", "the world's navel"). The partners are requesting a loan for working capital.

The partners are grateful for this loan and promise to finish paying their debt in the established time frame.

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.
