The Las Gualaceñitas communal bank is made up of 14 members who live in the canton of Gualaceo. This canton is known as the garden of Azuay because of its suitable land and template climate. They also raise animals and have commerce there. Its people are kind, polite and hardworking, like our members. Their able hands make the finest shoes and other artisanal crafts. They still maintain the culture and traditions of their people.

One of the members of this group is Mariana de Jesús. She is 53, married and the mother of 11 children. Two of her children are married, four work and study elsewhere, 1 is in high school and 4 work and help out financially. Her husband is a farmer, and they own the house they live in.

Mariana de Jesús is a farmer. She grows and sells vegetables. She also raises pigs and chickens and embroiders. She has embroidered for 24 years and learned the activity on the job. She works Mondays through Fridays with no set schedule, because she works at home.

She has been a member of the communal bank for a year and will invest the new loan in buying pigs.

Her dream is for her children to get ahead and have good jobs.

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.
