The communal bank Victoria del Portete consists of nine women and two men. They work in different businesses, such as agriculture and commerce, which allow them to have economic independence and provide financial support for their homes. The members are friendly, courteous, and charismatic people who still maintain their people's culture and traditions. They live in the Victoria del Portete parish in Cuenca, which is a place with a cold climate that has large prairies favorable for livestock, as well as many places to enjoy the natural environment.

One of the members of the group is Sofia, who is thirty-two years old. She is married with three children, ages thirteen, nine, and four. Her first child is in school, and her second child is in a city school. Her husband works as a day-laborer. They do not have their own home, so they rent.

Sofia does chores in her home. She spends the majority of her time with her children and family, but to support her home financially she also raises guinea pigs and chickens, which she sells in her community.

This is her second loan with the communal bank, and she will invest it by purchasing chickens and feed for her animals.

Her dream is purchase some land.

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.
