Greetings to all of you from your brother country of Peru. The Group Barrio Pincha-Chupaca, a group that now is initiating its fourth cycle, is characterized by its solidarity and hard workers. One of its members is Ms. Crecenciana, who is 54 years old, married with children who are older and a granddaughter. She began her business selling beer occasionally in the traditional festivals in her town. At the beginning she sold a little, but with the passing of time and seeing that her earnings were good, she pulled together a little capital to be able to sell more and grow her business. This way she bettered the quality of her life and that of her husband.

Her dream is to be able to purchase a tricycle to be able to carry to her clients (small stalls) the cases of beer. When they make orders today she has to carry them either by bringing little by little, or by renting a tricycle.

She and the other members of this group are completely grateful for the support that they have received through EDAPROSPO and the investors from KIVA. She is happy because her story will be known by other people with good hearts.

Cresenciana, wearing a bright green sweater and a white polo, is holding the hand of her small granddaughter.

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.
