This communal bank, called Kuña Marangatu, came about through contact with one of the ladies of the Fundacion. Currently it consists of 15 women. It is in its 20th loan cycle with the program and they have worked with the Fundacion since 2006.

Alba is one of the members of the group. She sells all types of footwear. This work allows her to get ahead on a daily basis and take care of her family and those that depend on her. She tells us that she is doing very well and so would like to continue running the business. She considers herself to be a very hardworking, enterprising and determined woman.

She is asking for the loan to buy footwear with which to have a wider variety of products to offer her customers. She is thankful to the Fundacion and Kiva for the opportunity given 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.
