This group is called “Señor D. los Temblores D. Quello Quello” and they meet every thirty days in the city of Quello Quello in Pisaq District, Cusco Province. The communal bank is notable for being composed of hardworking artisans and merchants. The group has 11 members and they’ve requested several loans from Asociación Arariwa; they will invest the money in their businesses.

We met Lourdes, 29, at this meeting. She has two children and raises small farm animals, farms and is a craftswoman. Since a young age she stood out as being a responsible, kind person. Because of that her neighbors invited her to participate in the communal bank.

In her free time Lourdes paints ceramics. She does all her jobs at home and does very well thanks to the effort she puts into her work. On this occasion she needs the loan to buy more supplies like paint and paint brushes, for example.

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.

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.
