The 24 de Mayo communal bank was formed by the union of various neighbors in the city of Santani. They are women of the field who go all out in order to be able to help their families. They are the heads of their households, and they want to get ahead and grow.

Most of them raise and sell barnyard animals like chickens, pigs, sheep, and the rest. With this they struggle to get ahead and to get their families out of poverty.

Feliciana is one of the members of this group. She also raises animals. She is requesting this loan in order to be able to buy balanced feed for her animals. This way she will continue feeding her animals, and they will not need anything. She is grateful for the opportunity that she is getting. It will be very helpful.

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.
