* not pictured
Our members belong to the "Los Tres Barrios - Qoricancha" Communal Bank, located in the province of Urubamba, District of Chinchero, in the Department of Cusco.

The majority of the bank members work in agriculture and raising cattle, with some working in retail sales as well. Two members work selling chicha [a fermented corn drink], another is a bricklayer, two work as craftsmen and one works making toilets.

One member, Alejandrina Huamán L., who is originally from Chinchero and the Qoricancha community, is married and has two children. She completed a primary school education and has been raising cattle since she was practically a little girl. Now she works buying and selling cattle. She goes to the fair in Quispicanchis province to buy young animals. She then raises and fattens them, breeds and raises their young, and sells the older animals. When she has bulls she also rents them so that they can breed with her neighbors' cows. It is a complex and time-consuming job, and she is asking for this loan in order to buy new calves.

All of our members are thankful for the opportunity offered by the loan process and promise to repay their loans within the established time period.

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. Arariwa fosters village banking, supports savings accounts, promotes access to education, and empowers women entrepreneurs (who make up 78% of its borrowers).

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.
