This communal bank is working in their fourth cycle. They are receiving training from counselors on how to work as a team and the advantages of working as a team. The training takes place during the fourth cycle.

Luisa B., age 45, is one of the members. She has two children, and they stay at home while she leaves to sell her merchandise (“braseros”: containers used to burn coals to heat houses). Every morning she sells in the Lambaré area. She later returns home to prepare lunch. She leaves again in the afternoon to sell.

She is a very self-sacrificing woman who has a tedious daily work schedule. Upon arriving home from work she needs to do the housework. Everything she does is to get her family ahead.

She is requesting the loan to buy aluminum to make the braseros. Her husband, a blacksmith, makes them.

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.
