Cumbe (Cuenca) Group
Laura, 34, is one of the members of this group. She is married and from this marriage has five children, ages 19, 16, 15, 12, and 10, all of whom are in school.
Her husband works in construction as a mason. The house she lives in is her property.
Laura raises and sells chickens and pigs, which she sells in her community. Since she works at home, she does not neglect her family.
She has been benefitting from loans from the communal bank for eight years, in her home and in her business. She's going to use the new loan to buy chickens, pigs, and animal feed.
Her goal is to continue with her business and for her children to get ahead in their studies.
The two small attached photographs are of two members who for family reasons were unable to be present when the group photo was taken.

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.
