The Mujer y Fortaleza loan group is made up of 15 members who, despite their daily problems, never abandon their good humor and charisma because it's what allows them to move forward happily every day. They make a living in a variety of economic activities that have given them the opportunity to be financially independent and give their children a better future.

The members live in the area of Turi Parish in Cuenca. This area enjoys a spectacular view, so it's known as the viewpoint of the city. The architecture is a mix of old and new, and the residents work in agriculture, raise animals, and perform various jobs in the city.

One of the members of this group is Rosa Florinda, who has been in Mujer y Fortaleza for two years. This group is made up of determined, friendly, and kind women who support each other mutually.

Rosa Florinda, 45, lives in a common-law relationship and has three children, ages 12, 11, and 4. Her two oldest children attend school in the town and her youngest one is in pre-school. Her husband's a sawyer by trade. The house they live in is their own.

Rosa Florinda makes a living in agriculture. She sells her harvests and raises and sells guinea pigs and chickens. She also has had a store for four years. She's going to invest the money from her loan in provisions because her goal is to expand her store.

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.
