The communal bank is called “Mujeres Luchadoras” (“Fighting Women”) since all are fighting for the progress of each other and for the group as a whole. The group came together with the hope of being able to help their families and children. Currently they are in their fourth loan cycle and they are very pleased.

Irma is one of the members of the group. She tells us that she sells drinks of all kinds and that, thanks to this work, she has been able to help her family and provide it with all that is necessary to move ahead.

She is requesting a loan to buy beer, wine, liquor, sodas and other drinks in order to supply her store and to offer her customers a greater variety of products.

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.
