Its architecture is a mix of the natural and colonial. Its people are hard-working, just like the group members who are women that fight day-to-day by working to offer their children a better future. They are people that still keep their culture and traditions alive.

One of the group members is Lorgia. She is requesting her first loan in the communal bank Jocesito de Cumbe, which she was invited to by a a friend and neighbor. She hopes to be able to improve her work activities.

Lorgia is 27, the single mother of two children, ages 4 and 2, who live at home. She does not have her own home, which is why she lives in a family member's house with her parents, with whom she shares the home expenses.

Lorgia takes care of her children, who are still small, at home. Since she lives in the countryside, she makes a living raising guinea pigs, hens and cattle, whose milk she sells. She also does farm work, which is for household consumption, but if there are leftovers she sells them.

The money from her loan is to be invested in the purchase of feed for her animals and compost to improve her pastures. Her goal is to have a store in her home.

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.
