The communal bank "Mujeres Trabajando Juntas" (Women Working Together) formed five years ago and works with Fundación Paraguaya. Most of the members are working at the moment. Marta, one of the members, joined the group because she needed work to help her family out. She sells herbal remedies as a street vendor and also collects recyclables such as aluminum, plastic, paper, and iron.

Marta hopes her children have a brighter future, so she works hard every day to give them the chance to go to school and achieve a better life. She is applying for a loan to buy aluminum, plastics, and paper to resell and increase her income.

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.
