This communal bank was launched by Mrs Sara who invited and organised her friends and neighbours to form a part of the Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras. They glady accepted the invitation and the group was formed. Currently there are 20 women in the group. Mrs Sara has been in a relationship with Mr Julio for the last 13 years. He works in various trades such as plumbing, masonry and electrical work. They have 2 daughters, both minors, who attend school. Mrs Sara sells groceries. She says that she has many customers who always buy from her. She considers herself to be a very good cook. One of her dreams is to have a diner where many would be able to enjoy her cooking.
She is asking for a loan to buy consumables for cooking such as meat, seasonings, baked goods. She is very happy and grateful for the opportunity afforded her by the Fundación.

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.
