The Kuña Katupyry communal bank was formed with a lot of effort in April of 2008. They are now in their eighth cycle. They work together in a supportive way within the program for enterprising women of the Fundación. In addition to each one’s independent work, they also develop business activities as a group. They mutually help each other to reach their objectives, which is to work in order to support their families.

Gullermina tells us that she sells vegetables thanks to the garden she set up. She did this thanks to a previous loan that the Fundación gave her. In addition to this, she also sells eggs. She tells us that through the loans she was able to improve her business activity, her standard of living, and her income.

She is requesting the loan to buy more vegetables and eggs. This way she will be able to stock up and meet her customers’ demand.

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.
