The communal bank San Miguel was formed through the initiative of Señora Blasia who was very interested in the program, organized her friends, as they are all neighbours, into the group which currently has a total of 12 members. They are all women of little means and they saw the Fundacion as a great opportunity as several communal banks in the city are making progress.

This group is in its 1st cycle and is learning the importance of teamwork that is honest, responsible and communicative within the group.

Señora Blasia works in the breeding and sale of animals. She says that this kind of work is very hard as she must keep a close eye on the animals so they do not get sick and the like. In spite of this, she says that she makes a very good profit and she would like to continue in this work.

One of her dreams is to have a farm where she can keep all kinds of animals for breeding.

She is asking for the loan to buy animals, as well as nutritionally balanced feed for them. She is grateful to the Fundacion for the opportunity this provides her with as obtaining the loan will be of considerable help to her.

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.
