In this Group: Juana De Jesús, Jenny Elizabeth, Teresa De Jesús, María Inés, Deysy Yesenia, María Cristina, Rosa, María Verónica
The "Mujeres de Bahía" communal bank is made up of eight women who work daily in sales; whether it be selling clothing, footwear or other items. They are friends and workmates who who have come together to form this marvelous group. They are friendly, kind people with great charm, who still keep alive the culture and traditions of their people.

They live in the city of Azogues. This city is very special, as because of its geographic situation, the entire city is located on a slope. On the highest point is the cathedral, and from there one can see a great part of the city. The city has great artists who with their hands maintain its history. Its cuisine is varied, and captivates the palate of those who visit.

One of the members of this group is Deysy. She is 34 years old, divorced and has two children ages 16 and 13, who go to school in the city. They do not have their own house so she rents.

Deysy sells organic fertilizer. She sells her product all over the country and works from Sunday to Sunday with no fixed hours. She has been doing this work for a year, and at the moment it's going very well.

As she is an enterprising woman, she is going to invest her new loan in the purchase of clothing, and hopes to eventually have a store. Her goal is to have her own house in the city of Azogues.

On this occasion, a friend of the members is accompanying them in the photo, and is wearing a blue-striped sweater and a scarf.

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.
