The contact for starting this communal bank was Sara. She invited and organized her friends to become part of the Comité de Mujeres Emprendoras (Enterprising Women) program. They were happy to do so, and the group came about from that. They are working jointly, helping one another move forward.

Cynthia is one of the members. She sells drinks and lingerie. She has been together with Diego for eight years. He is an ironworker. They have two daughters who are minors, and go to primary school.

She says that her drinks business is going very well, because she always has a lot of customers. This is why she likes to continue investing in it. She is applying for a loan in order to stock up on all kinds of drinks, such as wine, energy drinks, and others.

She dreams about setting up her own business in her home, where she can offer her clients a good variety of meals and drinks, and so manage to increase her income, and provide the best for her family.

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.
