San Cristobal De Aparquilla Group
In this Group: Cirila, Herminia, Juana Dolores, Melchora, Fermin, Juana, Julia, Raimundo, Marina, Isabel, Gumercindo, Yony, Juan
This group of 13 belongs to the community bank San Cristobal D. Aparquilla. They live in Aparquilla Anta, Cusco, and meet once a month at the community center in Aparquilla. Each group member works in retail. Cirila and Juana sell vegetables. Melchora, Julia and Ysabel deal sell small animals. Herminia sells groceries, and Fermin sells animal feed. Marina sells grain.

The group is concerned that their sales will be affected by a bridge to Izcuchaca that gave way during recent floods. For a while, they couldn't sell their products in other cities in Cusco. They got creative, though, and sold more products by finding an alternate route to the city of Cusco itself.

One group member is Cirila, a 62-year-old married woman with children. Although she doesn't have much formal education, she was able to open a small business buying and selling vegetables. She will use her portion of this loan to buy seeds. Flooding has damaged a number of farms belonging to group members, including Cirila's. They've lost their crops and need to repair rain damage. The group really appreciates this opportunity, and pledge to repay their loan on time.

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.
