The Santa Lucia Communal Bank was formed on November 17th, 2008, with 18 women. They are all friends and neighbors. They are working in their fifth cycle, and they are all very happy with the program. They work at different activities like selling fruits and vegetables, selling meat, selling sweets, selling large baskets, and selling charcoal, etc.

Justina is requesting a loan to buy chickens. She previously did other work, but because it did not go well for her, she wants to work selling chicken. She wishes to establish a business selling slaughtered chickens. At first she would sell to the neighborhood businesses. Then, she wants to have her own henhouse to raise, fatten, and sell the chicken herself. This will leave her with greater income.

She is grateful for the opportunity of the loan offered by the Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva, and she promises to devote herself to the maximum in her work.

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.
