The San Pablo communal bank has twelve women as members. They are friends and neighbours, living in the surrounding area of the Turi parish in Cuenca. This parish is recognised for being the viewing point of the city as, at its highest point, you can admire a large part of the city. There are various places where you can enjoy the local cuisine and experience the warmth of the area's people. The members of this communal bank are feisty, friendly and kind. They work every day to improve their financial stability at home and to move their families forward.

One member of this group is Mariana. She has been with the San Pablo communal bank for four years and, in this time, she has built relationships with all other members of the group. She likes the communal bank as everybody is caring and everybody supports each other.

Mariana is 46 years old. She is single and has no children. She lives with her mother, with whom she shares the cost of household bills.

Mariana is a street vendor who sells clothes. She does this from Monday to Friday but has no fixed timetable. At home, she raises and sells chickens, pigs and cattle, work that gives her the opportunity to improve her income.

This new loan will be invested in buying clothes so as to have a greater variety, and also to buy feed for her animals.

Her goal is to have a shop and so to sell all her merchandise from one place.

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.
