In this Group: Gloria , Luis , Elva
The “Cuyes Dorados” (Golden Guinea Pigs) mutually supportive group is a group of enterprising people seeking to get ahead and improve their families’ quality of life.

The group president is Gloria, a 54-year-old woman living in the city of Latacunga. She has a 20-year-old son. Gloria lives with her son and husband and Gloria defines herself as a cheerful, honest, respectful and very hardworking woman. Some time ago she decided to start a business to help her husband economically and she decided to raise animals to sell. It had good results and her entire family’s quality of life has improved.

The loan she’s asking FODEMI for is to buy baby guinea pigs to raise for subsequent sale. She will also invest in setting up the cages where she’ll raise them. Gloria is convinced about investing money in her business because she’s doing better every time and she’s earning higher income.

Gloria wants to reach her dream of having a large guinea pig nursery to become a micro businesswoman supplying her city’s markets and with this be able to help with her son’s education.

About VisionFund Ecuador

The organization works with vulnerable populations, especially women, in the marginalized urban and rural sectors of Ecuador.

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.
