The La Esperanza communal bank was formed by neighbors in the city of Santaní, where all the members work in independent activities. Together, they form a united and hard-working group.

Teodolina is a special case, as she became a domestic employee by starting her own business, which consists of a well-stocked, small restaurant. She is an enterprising woman who, through her efforts, is improving her living conditions.

She is requesting this loan to invest in buying sweets, groceries, drinks, and other products, which will allow her to continue with her sales. She is grateful for the help she is receiving.

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.
