The communal bank "Santo Domingo" came about through the management and support of a group of women who were working in this location. The group is from the San Lorenzo area, and its members established as its main objective the personal and economic growth of each member.

Mrs. Mirta is one of the group members and she has been selling clothing for several years. Through her work she has grown as a micro-businesswoman and has helped her family. Her dream is to have her own shop where she can display the garments she sells.

The loan she is requesting from the foundation and Kiva is to buy t-shirts, shirts, jeans and other clothing items.

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.
