The communal bank "San Pablo" came about through a contact the Paraguaya Foundation's treasurer had.

It is comprised of 10 women entrepreneurs who live in the same area and are neighbors. With the loan they have requested they plan to increase their businesses and create new sources of income to improve their lifestyles.

Mrs. Bernarda R. was the first one to get in touch with the group's guidance couselor because she was interested in setting up her own group. She works in house cleaning and wants to use the loan to raise and sell chickens. It is a business she wants to get started in, and she also wants to set up a group plan to improve understanding and duties within the group.

All are women who need economic help and, therefore, they trust Kiva and the lenders to help them get ahead just like other groups.

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.
