The "Buscando el Éxito" communal bank is made up of 15 members, the majority of whom work in a market in the city, and carry on various businesses, such as selling fruit and vegetables or preparing and selling food. These businesses give them the opportunity of improving their household finances and helping their families move forward in life.

All are enterprising women who seek prosperity. They live in various parts of Cuenca, a city that has a cold climate. Its historic center is a mix of modern and colonial architecture, and it has a great variety of traditional cuisine that delights the palate. Its people still keep alive their culture and traditions.

One of the members of this group is Nancy. She is taking out her second loan as a member of the "Buscando el Éxito" communal bank. She lives in the Totoracocha area of the city Cuenca. She is 40 years old, married, and has three children, ages 16,14 and 5. Her first two children go to a school in the city, and her youngest child goes to preschool.

Her husband is a merchant, and the house where they live belongs to them. Nancy does her household chores and spends her time looking after the whole family.

To help with the household finances, she works knitting a great variety of items, such as scarves and sweaters. She learned this work on her own, as she had an aptitude for it. Now she sells to her friends and acquaintances. She is going to use the loan to buy yarn, so that she can continue this work.

Her goal is to have a restaurant.

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.
