In this Group: Ramiro Rober, Lizite Martha, Rosario, Ada Leonor
The Asociación de Agua Oriental – Edén is located in Puntiti in the Sacaba municipality. It is currently comprised of 187 members who have connection to the water distribution system. This was financed years ago by the government and with contributions from each one of the neighbors. This is for the drilling of a well and an elevated storage tank.

It is now suffering from sedimentation, and the flow is drying up. That is why, in assembly, they resolve to sign a contract with a company to drill a well. They need 80,000 liters of water a day, and they need to build an elevated tank to keep and distribute the water. To do this, they have part of their resources in a savings account. However, in order to complete the amount, they need a loan.

The neighborhood has grown to more than 250 families. Currently, the are not covering the difference because of supply. It is a neighborhood that, little by little, and with their own contributions, is addressing different works of improvement in order to achieve a better quality of life for all of the families that live in the community.

The board of directors is comprised of Martha, Ada, Rosario, and Rober. They are the representatives for the administration. Rober was not able to appear in the photo above.

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.
