Martha Q. is a member of the Qhantati group, which belongs to the Los Andes community center. She makes “chajchas” (ribbon to which there are tied several goat or pig hooves, and when shaken, the sound produced suggests that of wind and falling rain). She has been working in this business for approximately 30 years. She sells her products in the city of La Paz and Cochabamba. With these earnings she has been able to get her five children ahead. She currently works with help from her grandson. She will use the loan to travel to different pueblos to buy hooves.

Additional Information

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.
