The communal bank Corazón de Jesús is made up of twelve members and two members who work in agriculture raising animals and other business activities in the city of Cuenca. Their jobs allow them to be financially independent by paying off their business and household expenses so they can get ahead with their families.

They are kind and nice. They live in the Valle en Cuenca parish, a place where the scenery is beautiful, the people are kind, and they maintain the culture and traditions of their towns.

One of the members of this group is Ana María. She is 42 years old, married, and has four children ages 25, 23, 21 and 12. Her eldest child works to pay his personal expenses. Her next two children are married and live independently. Her youngest child is studying in a schoolhouse in the city.

Her husband is a chauffeur and works at loaning out his services. They own their home.

Since Ana María was very young she has worked half the day as a domestic employee and for five years she has dedicated her attention to her store, where she works from Sunday to Sunday without a fixed schedule. She also raises pigs, chickens and guinea pigs, which she sells in her community.

She has been a member of the community bank for seven years and she will invest her new credit in the purchase of staple products to stock her store.
Her goal is to increase her business.

On this occasion, the mother of one of the members is included in the photo. She is the one who is seated in the first row wearing a blue skirt, a sky-blue blouse, and a white jacket.

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.
