The Tenacious Women Communal Bank was formed by the union of various neighbors in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. All of the bank’s members carry out different business activities like sales and preparing fast food.

However, as the members formed a very united group, they were capable of jointly carrying out their activities. This strengthens their camaraderie.

Bonifacia is one of the members of the bank. She sells various products and “mini cargas” (credit for cell phones, which is very common in the neighborhood general stores) for the community. She needs the loan to increase the size of her grocery store.

In closing, she is a very creative woman, and her customers greatly admire 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.
