In this Group: Esther Lorena, Lizeth Andreina, Rosa Edelina, María Dolores, Hortencia María, Ligia Adriana, María Hilda, Luis Alfredo
The Bellavista communal bank is made up of seven women and one man who live by the Victoria del Portete parish in Cuenca, a place with a cold climate. It has extensive plains conducive to the raising of livestock. Its landscapes give many moments of relaxation. Its people dedicate themselves to the breeding of animals, agriculture and many leave daily for the city to work in different economic activities. They are friendly people and they still maintain the culture and tradition of their parents.

One of the members of this group is María Dolores. She lives by the sector with the same name as the communal bank. This new loan is her fourth. All of this time at the side of her companions has allowed her to come to have a better relationship with them and expand their bonds of friendship.

María Dolores is 47 years old, is married and she has conceived two children from this marriage who are 23 and 21 years old. Her first child works and helps her economically. Her second child is married and lives independently. Her husband works daily as a bricklayer. They don’t have their own house so they live in one they are renting.

María Dolores devotes herself to the household chores and as she lives in the country she also works in agriculture. What she harvests is only for home consumption. She raises and sells guinea pigs, chickens, pigs and cows from which she sells the milk.

She is going to invest her new loan in the purchase of pigs and feed for all of the animals.

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.
