Canton 24 de Mayo, located in the province of Manabí, is known for its beautiful landscapes, its forests, its rich fauna and its hardworking inhabitants, who work in agriculture and raising animals. Communal bank “Buena Aventura” meets here fortnightly. This group is composed of ten women and two men who some time ago decided to come together and form a group that has helped them a lot to get ahead.

Ana, 30, is one of this group’s members. She is married and has four children who are 14, 12, 8 and 6 years old. The two older children go to secondary school and the smaller ones to primary school. Her husband works in agriculture. Ana raises pigs and poultry in order to help her husband with the home expenses, which are considerable. She has a small barn at home where she takes care of these animals, making some money without leaving her house. This income helps her cover her children’s studies; her husband makes too little to cover these expenses, since they are four and their education becomes expensive. Ana raises her pigs for four months and then sells them to middlemen who visit her at home. She slaughters the chickens herself and delivers them to shops in town, receiving even better profits.

Ana will use this new loan to buy animal feed and medicines for her pigs and chickens. This is her second cycle with the communal bank and she feels happy with the help she receives through these loans. Her dreams are to provide her children with the best and get ahead in life.

En el cantón 24 De Mayo de la provincia de Manabí es conocido por sus paisajes hermosos, por sus bosques, por la variedad de su fauna y por su gente trabajadora dedicada a la agricultura y cría de animales. Aquí se reúne cada quince días el Banco Comunal Buena Aventura.

Este es un grupo formado por 10 mujeres y 2 hombres que hace tiempo atrás decidieron unirse y formar este grupo el cual les ha ayudado mucho para salir adelante.

Una de las socias de este grupo es la señora Ana, tiene 30 años de edad, está casada y de esta relación tienen cuatro hijos de 14, 12, 8 y 6 años de edad, los dos mayores estudian en colegio y los menores en escuela. Su esposo se dedica a la agricultura.

Doña Ana para poder ayudarle a su esposo con los gastos del hogar que son muchos, se dedica a la cría de chanchos y aves de corral, tiene una pequeña granja en su casa, allí cría estos animalitos con lo cual ella se gana algo por su cuenta sin salir de su casa, estos ingresos ella los utiliza para los gastos de los estudios de sus hijos ya que su marido gana muy poco en sus labores en el campo y no le alcanza para poder solventar estos gastos ya que son cuatro y es mucho lo que ellos necesitan para sus estudios. Ella cría los chanchos por cuatro meses y luego los vende a comerciantes que llegan hasta su casa, a los pollos ella misma los faena y lleva a entregara a tiendas de la localidad lo cual le deja mejores ingresos.

Este nuevo crédito lo va utilizar en comprar, alimento y medicinas tanto para los pollos como para los chanchos. Este es su segundo ciclo en el Banco Comunal y está muy contenta por la ayuda que recibe con los créditos.

Sus sueños son darles lo mejor a sus hijos y salir adelante.

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.
