Greetings from Peru! Sra. Janet is a member of “Las Dulces Orquideas” Communal Bank, which is made up of nine members who engage in various business activities.

Janet has been selling kebabs, tripe and doughnuts. She started her business when she was divorced because she had to work to support her two daughters. Thus, she began selling kebabs from the doorway of her house and over time she became better known and now she also sells doughnuts.

Janet has requested a loan to purchase meat, flour and other supplies to prepare her doughnuts and kebabs and thus be able to serve her customers.

Janet is separated and has two daughters. Thanks to her effort and dedication she has succeeded in improving her income. Her daughters attend private schools. Janet is very happy with this loan and thanks Edaprospo and Kiva.

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.
