The “Sagrada Familia” (Sacred Family) communal bank was formed by the union of 17 neighbors from the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. All of the members carry on independent business activities. They also have business activities as a group, which they do to strengthen themselves as a group. The members formed a very united group that is capable of doing all types of work together.

Luisa is one of the members of the communal bank. She is married and has one child. She devotes herself to hairdressing. She is a home hairdresser, which means that she goes to the customer’s house to be able to work when they call her. She has become very well-known this way. She now has a very good clientele. Her dream is to be able to have a place in her own house. That way she would not have to spend a lot of time away from her house.

She is asking Kiva and the Fundación Paraguaya for help to buy shampoo, gel, rinses, nail polish, combs, rollers, and other supplies to be able to keep working and meeting her customers’ demand.

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.
