The communal bank El Progresso was formed when several of the neighbors of the city of Santaní joined together. They are in their third loan cycle. They work as a group to help each other and each one of them takes their portion of the loan according to their need and their ability to repay.

Lucina is one of the members. She is married and has 5 children. She sells milk and cheese that she makes herself. This is how she and her husband work to support their children, since they want for them to have everything that they didn’t.

She is requesting this loan to buy milk so that she can increase her product stock so that she can fulfill the requests from her customers.

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.
