The San Pablo credit group consists of 12 women who strive daily to improve their homes’ economic stability. Hey work in various activities like agriculture, raising animals and in commerce. They are able to provide better futures for their children by means of these jobs.

They are proud to still maintain their culture and traditions alive. They live around Cuenca, a city that enjoys natural beauty in which nature can be admired as well as the colonial that jealously safeguards the city’s history.

One of the group members is Lorena, 33. She’s married and has had two children who are 10 and 8 years old and attend the little local school. Her husband’s a driver and provides taxi service. They don’t own a house; they are renters.

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.
