In forming this group, the main contact was Maria Dávalos, who lives in the Barrio San Miguel neighborhood of Ciudad del Este. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form the communal bank in her community.

The communal bank is called Kuña Guapa. There are 20 members, and they are in their tenth cycle. The group stands out in the neighborhood for being united, supportive, and responsible with each other.

Maria sells clothes in an itinerant manner. She goes to different locations in the country to sell her clothes. In addition to selling clothes, she sells athletic shoes and sheets. Sometimes she sells her merchandise on credit, and later she goes to collect. She says that this activity is very demanding, but it helps her family, especially with the daily food.

She is requesting a loan to buy clothes like t-shirts, shirts, sweaters, pants, sweatshirts, and others.

She is grateful to the Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for the financial help.

About Fundación Paraguaya

Fundación Paraguaya is a financially self-sustaining social enterprise that promotes entrepreneurship in urban and rural areas through microfinance, education programs, and more. Its focus on agriculture has helped many farmers boost their crop yields. And a number of other borrowers have taken out loans to start and grow social businesses that have helped deliver eyeglasses, medicines and other helpful services in their local communities.

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.
