The Maria Auxiliadora Communal Bank was born through the effort and support of another communal bank, which is working in the city of San Lorenzo.

This communal bank set their main objective to be the growth of each one of its members. All of the members are known in the area as very hard-working women.

Maria Magdalena R., age 47, is the president of the group. She lives in the city of Laurelty. She is an enterprising, hard-working, and above all, a very optimistic woman. She devotes herself to “quiniela”, a very common game of chance (lottery) in Paraguay. In the game the numbers are a diversion, and the combinations for the lotteries are transmitted on television and on the radio. The results are also published every day in newspapers and on the internet.

Maria Magdalena wants to get a loan to be able to make the stand where she works a bit more comfortable. She wants to be able to buy more space for this game of chance. That way she can get more people to participate, and she will get greater income to support her family.

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.

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.
