The Cruzloma Credit Group consists of twelve women and one man from the Descanso section of Paute Canton in Ecuador. This region has a temperate climate and fertile land that allows farmers to grow a tremendous variety of fruits. Most people in the Descanso area earn most of their income from farming, raising animals, and running shops. Many Descanso residents go to the city each day to pursue various jobs.

The Cruzloma members are all friendly and kindhearted people who work each day in order to achieve greater economic stability. They strive to improve their lot and to offer their children a brighter future, while also preserving their culture and traditions.

One of the Cruzloma members is Doña María, a 63-year-old single mother of two adult children who are married. Doña María owns her own home, where she lives with her married daughter and three grandchildren.

Doña María has for several years worked selling staple foods in a city market, which has allowed her to provide for her children. She also raises pigs and chickens at her home.

Doña María is applying for a new loan to purchase staple foods and boost her inventory. Her ambition is to continue growing her business.

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.
