Friendly greetings from Peru! I’d like to introduce you to the Grupo Mujeres Luchadoras--Chupuro. The group is just starting its second loan cycle. It’s made up of eight members, who, as their name suggests, are 100% hardworking women. They wish to help their families get on in life with the income from their small businesses.

One of these hardworking women is 47-year old Carolina who lives with her husband and four children. As her husband doesn’t earn enough to support the family, she sells traditional food at festivals. Her dishes are well-known for their delicious flavour and are much in demand. As well Carolina sells lunches in a nearby school cafeteria.

Carolina is known as one of the most hardworking women and is very punctual with her loan repayments. Her dream is to have a space of her own where she can run a tourist restaurant as her main customers are the tourists who visit her town. The money she is seeking will be used to buy ingredients (special peppers, rice, oil, vegetables) as the dates of festivals and local dances are fast approaching.

Carolina is the first person on the left in the photo. She is wearing a green top with black stripes. In the upper photo you can see Ruth in a black hat and Gloria in a grey sweater.

¡Saludos fraternales desde Perú! Les presento al Grupo Mujeres Luchadoras – Chupuro; grupo que está iniciando su segundo ciclo y formado por 8 socios que, como su propio nombre lo dice, son mujeres 100% luchadoras. Que sacan adelante a su familia con los ingresos de sus pequeños negocios administrados por ellas mismas.
Una de estas mujeres luchadoras es Carolina de 47 años que vive con su esposo y sus 4 hijos. Como no son suficientes los ingresos que su esposo recibe ella se dedica a la venta de comida típica en las Fiestas patronales que por su excelente sazón la han hecho muy reconocida y a sus platillos muy demandados; asimismo, ella también vende viandas en el cafetín de una escuela ubicada en su localidad
Carolina se caracteriza por ser una de las mas trabajadoras y muy puntuales en sus pagos. El sueño de ella es de contar con un local propio, donde hacer un restaurant turístico, ya que sus principales clientes son los turistas que visitan su pueblo.
El crédito que ella solicitó es para la compra de sus insumos (Ajíes especiales, arroz, aceite, verduras, etc.), ya que se acercan fechas festivas, bailes típicos, etc. en su localidad.
Carolina es la primera persona de la derecha, viste un polo verde con rayas negras. * En la foto superior se puede observar a Ruth con una gorrita negra y Gloria esta con una chompa ploma.

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.
