The "Pucacruz" loan group consists of fourteen women who live in the surrounding area of the Valle parish in Cuenca, a place of natural beauty that sits in the highest parts of a mountain from where the landscape can be seen. Its people work in the fields in activities such as animal husbandry and agriculture; many people also head to the city every day for various types of work. The members still proudly preserve their traditional dress as well as their cuisine. They always strive to provide their children with a better future.

One of the group members is Rosa. She is twenty-two years old, married, and has two children, aged two and five. Her first son attends an area school. Her husband works in construction. They live in their own home.

Rosa spends her time at home caring for their children; however, to help her husband with living expenses, she raises chickens and guinea pigs as livestock. She also works in agriculture for both home and commercial use.

This loan is to buy chickens and animal feed. Her goal is to own more higher quality animals.

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.
