Eleven members make up this friendly group known as the "LOS COMERCIANTES DE ANDAHUAYLILLAS" communal bank. The members live in the Andahuaylillas district which is 45 minutes by car from the city of Cusco.
The members alternate their different activities with their main activities which are agriculture, livestock farming and retail sales. The women in the group, for the most part, sell prepared meals in the town's central market. Some of them raise small farm animals (guinea pigs, baryard fowl, pigs) for sale. Still others have grocery stores or sell music CDs or movies. Our members little by little increase their sales making their enterprises more prosperous and of wider variety. Every so often they reinvent themselves to be more competitive with other merchants. They request this loan to invest in their various business enterprises.
Our members are grateful for and greatly value the funds obtained through this method and commit to the total repayment of their debt in the time frame agreed upon and pledge to continue forward despite difficulties.

About Asociación Arariwa

Arariwa serves the southern Andean provinces of Peru, and is distinguished by its efforts to reach the very poor, who often live in isolated rural areas.

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.
