San Sebastián is the communal bank formed by 11 very hardworking women, fighters from the city of Villa Ygatimi. All of the women are heads of household who struggle to support their families every day. They saw in the Fundación Paraguaya program an excellent opportunity for progress. They are currently in the first loan cycle of the program for women entrepreneurs, but they would like to be able to go beyond this.

One example of struggle is Ramona, who raises and sells animals, like chickens and pigs. She says she is very selfless in her work, since she has to be devoted to the animals she raises, so they don't get any illness or have any problem. She says this work has helped her a lot to grow and help her family.

She is requesting the loan to buy young chickens and pigs to raise and later sell, since she wants to continue progressing and growing in her business.

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.
