The loan group Cochapamba is composed of 9 women and 1 man who live in the area around the Valle parish in Cuenca, a place that has beautiful scenery for enjoying nature's warmth. Its people are friendly and polite, like the members who work every day to improve their households' financial situations in order to give a better future to their families. They do fieldwork, such as agriculture or raising animals, and work in business. Many work in the city in different jobs.

One of the members of this group is Tania. She is taking out her second loan alongside her friends and partners from the loan group Cochapamba. She enjoys her loan group because her friends give her advice and guide her in her life.

Tania is 22 years old. She is a single mother of a 3-year-old daughter. She lives in her parents' house and shares the household expenses.

Tania spends her time at home caring for her daughter, but when she goes out, she does farm work like raising chickens, pigs, and guinea pigs, which she sells in the city. She also works in agriculture.

She is going to invest the money from her loan in the purchase of chickens, guinea pigs, animal feed, and seeds. Her goal is to have her own stall in the market to sell her products.

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.
