The group Corazón de María is made up of nine women, who are all friends. Every day they work doing different activities, which give them the opportunity to settle their expenses and improve the economy of their homes. They are all kind and courteous people. They live in the surroundings of Valle parish in Cuenca. This area has a cold climate and its uneven geography makes for beautiful landscapes to enjoy. The main economic activities are agriculture, animal breeding, and trade.

One of the members of this group is Gladys. She has been a member of Corazón de María for four years, and over this time has established better friendship ties with all her fellow members, At the same time, the loans have allowed her to have better economic stability.

Gladys is 38 years old and married. She has four children as a result of her marriage, aged 23, 22, 17, and 14 years. Her eldest daughter is married but lives in her house and shares the household expenses. Her second and third eldest children, who are sons, are working and helping her economically. Her youngest child, a daughter, is studying at a school in the city. Her husband works as a bricklayer, and the house in which they live is their own.

Gladys spends her time doing the household chores, but to contribute to her household’s economy she has been washing other people's clothes for six years. There are also days when she is called to work as a day labourer, and she breeds guinea pigs and chickens at home.

She is going to invest her new loan in purchasing chickens and animal feed.

Her goals are to make a larger chicken shed and grow in this 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.
