The businesses that the communal bank members participate in are varied. Included among them are the sales of carrots, onions, lima beans, and peas, as well as a neighborhood store and cattle sales.

The loan that they will take out will benefit small micro-businesses in different lines of work, and Marcelina's is an integral part. She states that this is the first time she has has joined the institution at the invitation from a promoter who went to visit her at her house.

Additional Information

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.
