The members are friendly, gentle, and always maintain their charisma still keeping their traditional culture. They live in the city of Cuenca, a place full of nature and colonial architecture. Cuenca has been a World Cultural Heritage Site since December 1999. Its cuisine is varied so that it captivates the palate of all the visiting tourists.

One of the members of the communal bank “Yanuncay” is Rosenda, who likes the group very much because of the support and integration that exists as they are all good friends and they share great moments at each meeting.

Rosenda is 61 years old, married and through this relationship has four children, all adults, married and independent. Her husband is a cabinetmaker, and works in a carpentry shop that he owns.

Rosenda has been working as a teacher for 38 years, a time that has been very rewarding as she has taught many children. She has seen some of them grow up and become professionals, and this has made her very proud.

She is going to invest the loan to buy wood for her husband’s workshop that he can work on in his free time and will also buy construction supplies for home improvements.

Her dream is that the family business continues to grow.

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.
