The San Roque de Caaguazú Communal Bank is comprised of 20 women, and they have been together for two years. As a group they have an ecological garden that provides vegetables for the consumption of each family. Each member also has their daily work. The members found out about the Programa de Comité de Mujeres through the promotional activities in the area.

The members need a small amount of capital to invest in their work in order to have a better quality of life. They are humble people. They are very united, and they wish for a better future for all. They are sure that they will manage that thanks to the help from the Fundación Paraguaya.

Nemesia, one of the members, sells fruit and vegetables at the group’s weekly fairs. She is requesting a loan to buy supplies that she wishes to use in the garden to grow vegetables.

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.
