Our members belong to the “INTIHUATANA” (Sacred Inca Stones) communal bank; it has 13 cheerful, hard-working members who live in Urcos district, Quispicanchi province, Cusco department.

Marleni, 37, is a single mother of two children. In order to feed and educate her children she invested a bit of capital in the purchase of small farm animals to raise (guinea pigs, pigs and barnyard fowl). Once the animals multiply she sells them. She also buys and sells corn kernels as seed and uses the smallest ones to feed her barnyard fowl. In addition, she brings flowers from Muñapata to sell. She hopes to provide her children with the best possible education and she is their only means of support. She is asking for funds to buy pigs.

Her fellow group members have various commercial activities. Some have plant nurseries; others make and sell cheese; some sell food or flowers in the market while others raise cattle. Members Samuel, Silveria and Pascuala do not appear in the group photo. They were present that day, so was Gladys, but they didn’t want to be photographed because one had the mumps and the others begged out.

Our members are grateful for the loan and pledge to repay in a timely fashion.

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.
