More information about this loan


CONFRAS is a Confederation of Federations for Agrarian Reform in El Salvador founded in the 1980s. It was born out of the need to further land reform efforts following the Salvadoran civil war in 1979-1992. CONFRAS represents 107 cooperatives with a total membership of approximately 4,000 farmers.

CONFRAS offers its member cooperatives access to financing through a program called PROCAMPO (Agricultural Loan Program for Organization, Women and Production), which is administered by ACAF (Savings and Loan Cooperative “La Fuente”). Loan recipients receive training on personal finances, understanding microcredit and budgeting in addition to the agricultural technical assistance. Kiva lenders’ funds are used to help CONFRAS expand its loan portfolio within the PROCAMPO program and impact more Salvadoran farmers who are otherwise excluded from most MFIs.

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.
