View original language description ↓
The Community Bank “Casaorcco” is a new bank that opened 6 month ago. It has 15 female associates who live in the community of Casaorcco in the Carmen Alto district, one hour from the city of Ayacucho. Here, they learned how to be punctual, responsible and care for their children.

The associates have different businesses like raising and selling small animals, grain, livestock fattening, candy, clothing and wood. But, each one has a different story. Adela Calderón, for example, sells clothing at the markets and also buys grain there.

Since each associate’s need is different, the loans differ too. The amounts solicited range from 300 soles to 450 soles to 600 soles, for a total of 8,700 soles (3 soles = 1 US dollar) in loans from the Community Bank. This money will be invested in cattle, bulls, sheep, corn, wheat, barley, peas, wood, clothing and animal feed.

They’ll use their savings to buy school supplies for their children, increase business capital and buy basic needs.

The associates have big hopes for the future: that their children will aspire to something better than their parents; their businesses will grow and prosper; they’ll be able to improve their living conditions; and their children will become professionals.

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.
