This bank is named after the town's patron saint, "SR. DE TORRECHAYOC". This bank is located in the state of Urubamba and is composed of 11 members. They all live in Urubamba. They are all married and they all have young children. These new members all have their own individual business which is driving 'mototaxis.' This type of transportation in Urubamba is very common since the streets are very narrow and tight. This type of transportation is very fast and economical.

Our members would like to invest this loan in the maintenance of their 'mototaxis' so that they can provide a better service to their clients and make sure their 'mototaxis' will last as long as possible since they represent their work tools. In the case of the women who are members, one of them is renting her 'mototaxi' to a third person.

These members are all very thankful and they trully appreciate all the support given to them. They have all agreed on making the payments on time.

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.
