The communal Barrio Sucre consists of 12 members, who are hard-working, fighting women who work in different activities but especially in the fields of raising animals and agriculture. They also work in commerce, and some go out daily to work in the city, returning to their homes at night. They live throughout the parish of Cumbe, in Cuenca, where they can enjoy the great pastures of livestock farms, old estates, and estates of modern construction, which, without having the charm of traditional architecture, are not altogether out of place but rather give variety to the landscape. Its people maintain the traditions and culture of their towns.

One of the members of this group is Señora Juana, who is 42 years old. She is divorced from her husband, but has four children from her marriage. Three are married and live independently. Her youngest daughter is 9 years old and goes to a little school in the town.

Doña Juana works at her household duties and in agriculture. What she harvests is only for consumption in her home. She also raises pigs, lambs, guinea pigs, and chickens, which she sells in her community when she has some economic need.

She is a founding member of the communal bank, and she is going to invest her loan in the purchase of chickens to continue growing in this business. Her goal is to increase her animal-raising business.

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.
