The communal bank Mujer y Fortaleza is comprised of 16 members who live in the Turi Parish in Cuenca. From this parish there is a beautiful view of most of the city of Cuenca, so it is known as the city viewpoint. Its people, just like our members, are involved in commerce, livestock farming and work in different areas in the city. They are kind, gentle, warm-hearted people, who maintain the culture and traditions of their villages.

One of the members of this group is Ana Beatriz, who is 37, married and has four children, ages 16, 15, 13 and 11. All of her children study at the school for special children. Her husband is a construction worker and the house they live in belongs to them.

Ana Beatriz spends most of her time at home taking care of her children, but she supports her husband with the household expenses and works in farming, growing vegetables that she sells from home. She also raises chickens and guinea pigs.

The member has been in the communal bank for three years and all of the loans have helped her work. The new loan will be used to buy chickens to raise.

Her dream is to have a bakery one day because she knows trade.

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.
