They live in a community belonging to the district "El Valle" in Cuenca, which is known for its beautiful landscapes and varied cuisine.

One of the members of this group is Patricia. She is 48-years old and separated from her husband but, while they were still together, they had two beautiful children who are now 3 and 4 years old. She does not have her own house, but lives with her mother with whom she shares the home's expenses. Patricia is dedicated to caring for her young children and, in order to do this, she works raising chickens, which she later plucks, and sells. She has been running this business for 3 years. She also grows produce both for her family's consumption and to sell in the city. She is going to invest the money from this loan in expanding her chicken coop and buying chicken feed.

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.
