The businesses carried out by the members of the communal bank are varied, among which we have sewing jackets, knitting wool gloves, selling vegetables, and carpentry.

Martha indicates that she is part of the bank for the first time, because she has a business knitting wool sweaters. The loan in this cycle is to increase her capital buying wool that she will acquire in the markets in La Paz. After making the sweaters she will sell on request. This form of work helps her support her family because she is single and has one child.

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.
