The April 12 Society community bank is formed of ten women who are traders and have formed a big family in a market in the city. They help each other and all have a common objective which is to improve their economic standing and get their families ahead. They live in the city of Cuenca which is bathed by four rivers. Its historic center still guards the memories of their past. It is the third most important city in the country.

One of the members of this group is Maria Agueda. She lives in the area of Totoracocha in the city of Cuenca. She is reentering the April 12 Society community bank, a group of which she has been a member for some time and that she likes for the companionship that exists among all the members.

Maria Agueda is 59 years old. She is a single mother to three adult children who are married and live independently. She does not have her own house so she rents.

She has worked in the city market for 18 years. Now she has her own shop where she is dedicated to selling fruit, vegetables, and grains. She works from Sunday to Sunday without a fixed schedule. This business has allowed her to get all of her family ahead.

The money of the loan will be invested in purchasing grains, potatoes and fruits to continue her business. Her dream is to have her own house. The small photo is of three members who could not be present when they took the group photo.

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.
