This group of 17 hardworking women have united as a group, a "financial solidarity committee" or communal bank, through the [field partner] Fundación Paraguaya. The pledge to repay the loan is a joint one, and the key to success is an entrepreneurial spirit. One of the members is Señora Gloria, who dedicates her time to selling jewellery.

Señora Gloria buys the jewellery from intermediaries or travels to the city of Luque where they make siver jewellery. She says that while she can't complain about the sales she has had lately, she wants to continue stocking many styles of jewellery for sale. She is therefore seeking the loan to buy silver jewellery such as bracelets, chains, earrings and other things.

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.
