The Nuevo Dia (“New Day”) Village Bank (loan group) has 17 members, all women, and is currently beginning its fourth loan cycle. The group members are involved in a variety of businesses: they sell food, clothing, grains, dry goods, handicrafts, and books, and work as cosmetologists. They sell their wares from home, on the street, from house to house, and in markets.

Miriam is 25 years old and lives with her partner and their child. Miriam is an artisan and makes retablos (small, brightly painted wooden altarpieces depicting scenes of traditional Ayacuchan life) and knits items from alpaca wool. She works with her sisters, and they sell their wares from home. Miriam will use her loan to buy wool and paints.

Lourdes is 29 years old and lives with her partner and their daughter. Lourdes has a restaurant in a rented space. She works there everyday with her sister and one cook. Lourdes will use her loan to buy sugar and rice.

The group members need loans of different amounts. Many are requesting 200, 400 or 800 soles, and the group as a whole is requesting a total of 7,800 soles. Group members will use their loans to buy sugar, rice, wheat, barley, corn, wool, dyes, sweaters and pants. Some of the women’s dreams are to own their own homes, to buy plots of land, to open stores in their homes, to export their products, and for their children to grow up to be working professionals.

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.
