Entrada A Chunazaca  (Nabón) Group
In this Group: Virginia Orlanda, Lidia Jaqueline, Digna Yolanda, Enma Lucinda, Martha Isabel, José Alfredo, Martha Maribel, María Baleriana
The Entrada a Chunazana communal bank is made up of seven women and one man who have different businesses, particularly farming and raising livestock which they sell in their settlement or in town. All of these businesses give them the chance to improve their financial situation and move their families ahead. They live in the Nabon settlement, located to the southeast of the Azuay province. One of its geographic characteristics is the size of its territory, which makes access to and communication between different communities a bit difficult. The inhabitants’ main activity is agriculture. They still maintain their traditional clothing, culture, and traditions. They are happy and very gentle people.

Virginia is one of the members of the “Entrada Chunazana” communal bank and has been for five years. She is 39 years old, is in a common law marriage, and has seven children. One of her daughters is married and on her own. Two of their children attend school and two others are too young and are still at home. Her husband is an artist and works daily as a mason. They live in a home of their own.

Virginia raises pigs, Guinea pigs, and chickens and sells them in her own community. She farms her land and harvests only for the family’s consumption. She also makes “polleras” (a typical regional dress item)

She will use the money from this loan to buy fabric, thread, and feed for her animals. Her dream is to have her own business, such as a restaurant because she enjoys food. The small picture is that of one of the members who could not be present when the group photo was taken.

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.
