The Santa Catalina Communal Bank is comprised of 15 women from Ciudad de Este. They all got together with the objective of getting greater income. That way they will be able to get ahead. The women are the heads of their households. They shoulder a lot of anxiety about making progress and growing.

Rosa has a well-stocked grocery store. Thanks to this business she has been able to get ahead and generate the needed income to support her family. One of her dreams is to be able to have a “minisuper” (a small supermarket). Then she would be able to have greater income and attract more customers, not just from her neighborhood, but also from outlying areas. She says that everything she does is for the good of her family. She wants to give them everything that is good.

She is requesting the loan to buy food, drinks, vegetables, and other basic needs items. She will do this so that she can be well-stocked for any customer demand. She is very grateful to the foundation for opportunity it is giving her. Receiving the loan will be very useful.

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.

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.
