The “Tierra Fértil” [Fertile Land] loan group is comprised of eight women that live in the areas surrounding Valle de Cuenca, a parish characterized by its beautiful landscapes. The people are engaged in business, raising animals, and farming, and still maintain the culture and traditions of their parents.
The group members are happy, hardworking people that work in different activities, which allow them to contribute to their household expenses and get their families ahead.

One of the members of the group is Patricia. She is 31 years old, married, and has two children, ages 10 and 7, who attend the local school. Her husband sells gas, and they are renting as they don’t have their own home.

Patricia has worked in the family business, selling gas, for four years. She works from Monday to Saturday, without a fixed schedule. She will invest the money from the loan to pay for a plot of land that they will buy to build their house. Her goal is to have her own house.

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.
