In this Group: Omayra, Eugenia , Carmita
The “Mujeres Valientes” (Brave Women) communal bank is composed of three women from the community of Pujili. They are enterprising women seeking ways to get ahead and help their families economically; each one tries to reach her dream by means of daily work and effort.

This group’s president is Omayra, 22. She has two small children she loves and strives daily to move them forward and give them everything they need. Omayra defines herself as a humble person filled with Christian values and very hardworking; these are the qualities that have made Omayra a woman who is worthy of admiration and respect from her family and her entire community.

The loan Omayra asked FODEMI for is to buy two young cows to raise and in time produce milk because Omayra works raising cattle and wants to increase her small business of raising animals. Omayra’s dream is to continue working in her business and continue to grow more every day and to be able to give her children a good education thus improving her entire family’s quality of life.

The organization works with vulnerable populations, especially women, in the marginalized urban and rural sectors of Ecuador.

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.
