The committee is called ‘Kuña Pora’ and its 11 members are now in their fifth loan cycle. Their group stands out in their community for being very unified, supportive and responsible. Its members are involved in different areas of work and they always carry out their work with an enterprising spirit. All of the women come from humble families who fight to get ahead on a daily basis, and the work they carry out depends on their particular abilities.

One of their members, Teófila, works selling natural herbal remedies. She goes out to the country with her children to collect many different types of natural remedies that people can use to ward off pain. Once she has the amount and the variety that her clients need, she packs the herbs in small bags of different sizes. By packaging the herbs individually, Teófila’s clients will be able to manage their intake better and she will make a larger profit. In this way Teófila is able to work and support her family. She is requesting a loan to purchase natural remedies in bulk and to purchase small plastic bags of different sizes.

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.
