The communal bank La Esquina consists of ten female members and one male member who live in the parish of Sinincay in Cuenca. This parish has a beautiful church, beautiful landscapes and many places to enjoy nature. Its architecture is a mix of old and modern houses. Its people are dedicated to businesses, raising animals, agriculture and many of them work in the city with different positions. Its people are warm, friendly, and very gentle looking for ways to get ahead with their families.

One of the members of this group is María Angelita, who is requesting her fifth loan in the communal bank La Esquina. During this time, she has strengthened the bonds of friendship with all her friends and neighbors.

María Angelita is 52 years old, is separated from her husband but during her conjugal union she conceived seven children. Four of them are married and live independently, one of his sons works and helps her financially and her last two children are studying in a school in the city. She owns the house where she lives.

María Angelita is always taking care of her home and she is also engaged in agriculture, growing for her own consumption. She breeds guinea pigs, chickens and pigs that are sold in the community. She learned how to weave straw hats from an early age and she does it from home.

Her new loan will be invested in the purchase of chickens and feed for all her animals. Her goal is to finish her home, because some finishes are still missing.

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.
