The Community Banking Group, Señor D. la Picota, is a new bank that recently initiated 14 members, and who after weeks of training, is very happy to be starting out. Many of them were invited by members of other large Community Banking Groups and by the organizer. The members live in the Cerro la Picota neighborhood which is located at the base of the hill of the same name.

The members have different businesses like; selling kindling, general merchandise, grains, clothes, cheese, food, native arts & crafts, wines, bricks maD. by craftsmen, knitted sweaters, and recycling.

Each member has a different story. Like the case of Lucy - who offers food-preparation services for events and family engagements. In addition, she knits sweaters by hand, depending upon the requests that she has.

On the other hand, Zoila sells wines and tamales that she gets from the city of Cañete; which is where she's from, but she's lived in the city of Ayacucho for many years. She sells door to door.

Members need different amounts of loans; amounts such as 300, 450 and 600 soles for a total of 7,650 soles of loans for the Banking Community Group. They will invest the money in the purchase of wool, shirts, cheeses, wheat, barley, corn, rice, blankets, recycled material, and kindling. The dreams of the members are to have their children become professionals, to have their own homes, to grow their businesses, to have additional businesses and their own stores.

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.
