The Barrio Sucre village bank is made up of 14 women who work every day to improve the economic stability of their households and offer their families a better life. These women, despite all adversities, seek a way to move forward life and provide their children a better future. They work raising animals, growing crops, and as merchants, although they maintain their villages' culture and traditions.

They live in the village of Cumbe, in Cuenca, a place with beautiful landscapes and an architecture that is a mix of traditional and modern.

One of the group's members is Rosa, who has been an active member of Barrio Sucre for three years and established close friendships with the other group members and her neighbors, sharing good times and bad with them.

Rosa is 57 years old, and she and her partner have six adult children. Two of their children are already married, while the other four work and help their parents economically. Her partner works in construction as a mason, and they built the house they live in together.

Rosa has been doing the difficult labors of farmwork since she was very young. She learned the work from her parents and now makes her living that way. She grows produce that she sells in her community, and for several years she has also been selling animals, buying chickens, pigs, and guinea pigs and selling them in the local market.

She will use this new loan to buy guinea pigs, chickens, and pigs for her business.

Her goal is to keep expanding her business.

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.
