The 'Nueva Generación' community bank has seven [female] members who live in a community in Turi parish, in Cuenca. This parish is known as the viewpoint of the city of Cuenca. The locals raise animals, farm and work in commerce. Our members are friendly, kind, warm-hearted people. Above all, they are tenacious women who work hard every day for the well-being of their households, so that they can provide for their families.

One of the members of this group is 54-year-old Enma. Enma is a widow and has four children from her marriage. Two of her children are married and live independently. She also has two single daughters. One of her daughters is studying at university and the other attends a high school in the city. Enma does not own her own home but lives in rental accommodation.

Enma takes care of her housework and, in order to cover her household expenses, she works as a saleswoman. She has been in her business for four years and works four days a week. She does not work fixed hours. Enma's business is selling clothing and natural products. She makes her sales as an street vendor. She also raises and sells animals, and farms. Some of her harvested crops are for her family's own consumption and some are sold on the market.

Enma has been a member of her community bank for three years. She will invest her new loan in buying natural products and clothing so that she can continue in her business. Her dream is to own her own home.

Additional Information

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.
