The San Isidro Communal Bank was formed thanks to one of the members approaching the office of the Fundación Paraguaya [Paraguay Foundation] to familiarize herself with the entrepreneurial women’s program. Later she told her friends and neighbors about it and this group came about from there. All of the women are self-sacrificing and fighters who seek their family’s daily bread through their work.

One example is the fight of Emiliana. She breeds and sells animals. It is through this work that she earns the necessary income to proviD. for her family. She says this work causes her to make many sacrifices, as she has to feed and care for the animals and watch over them so they remain disease free. One of her dreams is to be able to have a farm where she can raise all types of animals.

She is asking for a loan in order to buy animals, as well as feed for them. She thanks the Foundation for the opportunity it gives her because getting the loan will be a big help.

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.
