The “Mujeres Soñadoras” (Women Dreamers) communal bank is composed of six women and three men who live in various places in the city of Cuenca, a city with much natural and cultural beauty. Its residents are kind and courteous people. This city also has a wide variety of traditional dishes that captivate the taste buds of locals and foreigners alike. Our members are very hard working people who are engaged in a variety of occupations that allow them to meet household expenses and to get ahead with their families.

One of the group members is María Cruz. She lives in Cuenca and is 60 years old. She’s a widow and has five children who are all adults and married. She does not have a house of her own; she rents.

Our member has raised chickens, guinea pigs and rabbits since she was a young girl that she sells in the city. She also farms and what she grows is for her own consumption. She’s also been collecting scrap for four years.

This is the second loan she’s had in the communal bank and she will use it to buy guinea pigs and their feed. Her goal is to have more animals to raise.

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.
