The Village Bank Allpaurccuna, which means "From where does the Earth come" in Quechua, is dedicated to agriculture and the raising of animals, and many of the women in the village bank are dedicated to the purchase and sale of cochineal (a red dye that comes from a certain insect), tuna, and other products that they sell in the city of Ayacucho.

The members have different businesses such as selling tuna, cochineals, young animals, fertilizer, and other goods relating to agriculture.

The members of the bank need varying loan amounts totaling 5,700 soles. The loans will be invested in the purchase of tuna, cochineal, tara, young animals and fertilizer.

The dreams of the women are that their children will be professionals, their businesses will get better, and that they will continue to have good production on their ranches and farms.

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.
