Barrio Sucre (Cuenca) Group
Gladys, a founder member of the Barrio Sucre communal bank, has built up a close friendship with her colleagues. She is 48, married and the mother of two children of 22 and 19, who are studying at a local school. Her husband works as a labourer and the house in which they live is the result of the couple's hard work.
Gladys shares her time between household chores and agriculture. She grows vegetables, which are either sold or consumed by her family. She also rears pigs, guinea pigs, chickens and livestock, whose milk she sells. She plans to invest her new loan in the purchase of livestock and animal feed. Her dream is for her children to be able to study for a professional career.

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.
