Las Triunfadoras  (Cuenca) Group
In this Group: Hilda Soledad, Mayra Alexandra, Dalia Maritza, Rosa Mercedes, Norma Soledad, Blanca Leonor, Aracelis Cecilia, Rosa Elvira
The communal bank Las Triunfadoras is made up of eight enterprising women who work very hard in order to move their families ahead and to be able to give a better future to their children. They make a living in trade or in working in the countryside. They are kind and gentle people, and they still maintain the culture and traditions of their small towns. They live in the surrounding area of Cuenca; this city is bordered by four rivers, and its historic center dates back to the colonial era.

One of the group members is Mayra. She lives within the Paccha parish in Cuenca, an area that enjoys beautiful nature. She is making her second loan with the communal bank Las Triunfadoras. She likes this group because all of the members are very kind.

Mayra is twenty-five years old and is a single mother of two children, ages four and one. Her first son is in kindergarten. She does not have her own home; she lives in her uncle's house and helps with the home expenses.

Mayra spends the day at home, taking care of her children. However, to have her economic independence, she has sheds where she raises chickens and guinea pigs. She sells these animals in the city.

Her new loan will be invested in the purchase of chickens, guinea pigs, and food for the animals.

Her dream is to give her children the best legacy, which is to study, so that they can become good professionals.

Additional Information

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.
