“Amistad del Sur” (Friendship of the South) is a Communal Bank that consists of nine members who are starting their second loan cycle. They did not experience any problems with repaying their previous loan. To date, the members have demonstrated great responsibility with their payments. They engage in different business activities in order to support their families. For this reason, they are requesting a loan.

Such is the case with Sr. Agapito. He currently serves as President of the Communal Bank. Agapito works in the transportation sector. He lives with his wife and two children who are attending school. The money from his loan will be used to maintain his vehicle, which is currently experiencing a few problems. This prevents him from offering good service. His greatest wish is to buy a small house because living in a rental property is an enormous expense.

Most of the members are hardworking individuals. They are grateful to be in a partnership with Emprender.

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.
