* not pictured
Adriana is 21 years old, married and has two children, ages 3 and 1. Her husband works as a courier at the Yanbal cosmetics factory. They live in the city of Cuenca, where they can enjoy the colonial beauty of a historical center. The rivers nourish the city, people and gastronomy, making it one of the most visited places in the country by natives and foreigners. Adriana dedicates herself to the household chores and caring for her niece. On Saturdays, she works cleaning other people's homes until midday. Her friend Alexandra encouraged her to join this group of enterprising women, which joined forces with Kiva partner Comunal Pro Mujer to make headway for their families and to have more and better opportunities for personal and economic advancement. This is the group's first loan, and with her portion Adriana plans to start a small bazaar for which she will purchase cards, stuffed animals, gifts, jewelry, school supplies, clothing, and other personal and household products. Her goal is to resume her studies since she has a first-grade education.

Sandra D. is another member of the community bank, and she lives in the city with her husband and their three children, ages 22, 21 and 17, all of whom are either studying in college or high school. It is not her own home, but her in-laws live in a separate area. Because her husband is a veterinarian, he runs his office out of the home to save on expenses. Sandra has worked as an employee at a private collection agency for the city's electric company for the past five years. She works Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. This is her first loan with the community bank, and with the money she plans to pay for her son's university education. Her biggest dream is to have her own home.

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.
