The loan group Familia Responsable (Responsible Family) was formed by 7 women and 1 man who live in the neighborhoods of the Victoria del Portete parish in Cuence. This parish is located in the south of the capital Azuaya. It was named in honor of the battle that occurred in its fields, exactly on the outskirts of Portete, on the 27th of February, 1829. Its people raise animals and work in agriculture, and many leave daily for the city to work in different activities. The members of the loan group are friendly and gracious people. They work in different businesses that allow them to pay the household expenses. They maintain the culture and traditions of their towns.

One of the members of this group is Señora Fabiola. She is taking out her second loan along with her friends from the loan group Familia Responsable. She likes her group because everyone is like family, and this form of credit helps them to become more united and to have a better relationship of friendship and camaraderie.

Señora Fabiola is 20 years old. She is married and has a son who is 2 years old. Her husband works as a day laborer. They don't have their own house, so they live in her father's house and share the expenses.

Doña Fabiola stays at home to care for her little son, but to help her husband pay the household expenses, she raises chickens and guinea pigs. She also farms, and what she harvests is for their home and to sell.

The money from her loan is to buy chickens, guinea pigs, and seeds for her plantings. 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.
