View original language description ↓
The Qatun Llaqta Communal Bank means “Great People” in quechua. It’s young, as it was started a year ago. It currently has three cycles and 16 partners. The partners of this Communal Bank are from a variety of communities in the Socos state, where the population is employed in agriculture, especially growing corn and raising animals.

The partners note that the Communal Bank has taught them to be punctual and responsible, and to save.

The partners are engaged in a variety of businesses including selling food, vegetables, grains, firewood, raising small animals and embroidering blankets (these are used to carry supplies and children).

Each partner has a different story. Adela, for example, helps her husband sell firewood and embroiders beautiful blankets which she sells in the markets.

The partners need to borrow different amounts, including 300 soles, 450 soles, 600 soles, and 900 soles, for a total loan of 8,700 soles to the Communal Bank.

These loans will buy rice, sugar, carrots, squash, onions, thread, cord, wheat, beans, eucalyptus trees, guinea pigs, and chickens.

The partners dream of seeing their businesses grow and their children receive a better education than they did.

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.
