Kuña Aty Group
In this Group: Teonida, Rosana, Blanca, Veronica, Estelvina, Benicia, Gladys, Dionicia, Fermina, Felicia, Dolores
The communal bank Kuña Aty has 11 members, all of whom are women from the same community. These women are humble and very responsible since many of their relatives depend on their incomes. These women's goal is to succeed personally and financially for the well-being of their families. They know they can reach this objective because they possess the willpower necessary to work together for a common goal. They are very appreciative of the "Fundación Paraguaya" (Paraguayan Foundation) for the opportunities they have given women to grow financially and personally.

One of the members, Gladys, sells fresh cow's milk everyday. This is a job which she must do very early, everyday as she must prepare the milk, bottle it and then go out to sell it. She has a dedicated clientele but competition is fierce therefore price and quality are fundamental. This loan would be used to purchase more bottles in order to expand her client base, and to improve the quality of her product.

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.
