The communal bank "Santa Ana" is made up of a group of neighbors from the city of Santani. They are in their 4th loan cycle, working together to help themselves. Each of them will take a sum from this loan because they need to invest in their businesses to make them grow.

Antonia is one of the members of this group. She works every day in her store, from the early hours of the morning until it is very late. She is a person who exerts herself a lot so that she can get ahead and give her family everything that she possibly can.

Antonia is requesting this loan to buy merchandise for her store, such as drinks, milk, bread, yerba tea, sugar, and other of her most popular products. She wants to have a good supply of these items in stock.

In the group, there are some people who are helping the others, but who are not taking loans themselves. This is why there are 14 women in the photograph.

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.
