Some women get together in the city of Paraguarí in order to capitalize their business activities. Others do so in order to undertake productive activities. From there they coordinate the meeting in order to familiarize themselves with the program. This has turned out to be very fruitful and interesting because of the benefits that are offered by the program.

The Communal Bank is called Tajy Poty. They are currently in their fifth cycle with an excellent rating. The members are 19 enterprising women. They give the best of themselves in order to increase their incomes. They do this so that they can offer their respective families the best. All of the members are tenacious, and they have invested their loans in their respective business activities.

Elva, for example, sells fruits and vegetables. Now that the fall season is starting in our country, she needs more citrus fruits. That is why she requests the loan in order to be able to stock her small sales stand. She will get more earnings that will help her family’s income.

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.
