The village bank Yanaturo Alto is made up of 12 women who are hardworking, friendly and kind. They work in different activities that allow them to cover their living costs and to make progress for their families. They all live in the city of Cuenca, a World Heritage Cultural Site since 1999, which is bathed by 4 rivers which give their name to Saint Ana of the Four Rivers. The people are friendly and warm-hearted, and they maintain the culture and traditions of their town.

One of the members is Mariana, 57, who is married and has 7 children; five of them are married and live apart, one single son works and helps her financially, and her youngest son is in high school in the city. Her husband is a watchmaker and they live in a home that they own.

Mariana is a seamstress, a trade that she began studying some 28 years ago. She makes all sorts of garments, working from Monday to Saturday without a fixed schedule. Since she works at home she also has time to raise guinea pigs and hogs.

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.
