Sra. Elisabeth G. lives in the center of Turi Parish. This place is blessed with the arrival of many domestic and foreign tourists who come to see the views of Cuenca that can be admired from most parts of the city. The residents engage in agriculture, while the young people look for opportunities in the city or abroad.


Elisabeth is a cheerful member and a native of Sigsig Canton. She is 40 years old and separated from her spouse seven years ago due to a lack of understanding in their home. This relationship resulted in four children (ages 17, 14, 8, and 6). They are all students attending primary and secondary school respectively. She does not have her own home and lives in a rental property.


This is her second loan cycle and her previous loan helped with the household expenses. She dedicates herself to her household chores and also raises cows, chickens, and sheep to sell from home or at the livestock fair. With the loan she will receive, Elisabeth will purchase chickens, vitamins, and feed to increase her poultry farm. Her goal is to provide her children with a good education since this is the only asset that will help them become successful professionals.


María Lastenia lives in Turi Parish, approximately five minutes outside of the city of Cuenca. She is 49 years old, married, and gave birth to six children who are now ages 31, 29, 26, 24, 21, and 18. The four oldest children are married and live independently. María lives with her two youngest children. Her husband works as a housepainter. Their own house serves as a reward for their years of hard work.


María is dedicated to her household chores and also to raising guinea pigs and chickens that she later sells from home or at the open fair in Cueca. Sometimes they are reserved for personal consumption. This is her eighth loan cycle with this group of determined women. These loans have helped her move her family forward. With this new loan, she will buy chickens and vitamins so that she can continue in this business to help her excel financially. Her dream is to see her children have financially stable households.

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.
