The 'Trinidad' community bank has 10 members who live in areas neighboring Turi parish in Cuenca. This parish is very well known for being the viewpoint of the city of Cuenca because you can see a large part of the city from there. There are a number of places where people can enjoy the local cuisine and spend pleasant moments. The locals are hospitable and friendly, as are our members who work in different business activities such as farming and livestock raising. Some also work in the city in different jobs. This allows them to contribute towards their households and provide for their families. They are known for maintaining the culture and traditions of their people.

One of the members of this group is Claudia. Claudia is 34 years old, married, and has seven children who are 15, 11, 8, 7, 5, 4 and 3 years old. Her eldest daughter attends high school and the next four attend elementary school in the town. He husband works as a builder. They own their own home.

Claudia takes care of her home but also works cleaning somebody else's house and laboring on other people's land when they need it. At home she raises guinea pigs, pigs and chickens.

This is Claudia's first loan as a member of her community bank and she will invest it in buying chickens and guinea pigs. Her goals are to provide for her children and to some day improve her animal farm.

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.
