Thirteen women from the city of Santaní bonded together with hopes of getting ahead and helping their children and relatives. Most of them are the heads of their families, very hard working and fighters who make self sacrifices every day. They see in the communal bank program a great opportunity to progress and to help one another.

One of the members is Zonia, who, thanks to the sales from clothing, has been able to get ahead and help to provide the household expenses. She comments that she is doing well in her business and that she always has good clothes. Her dream is to be able to continue growing and to become a successful merchant.

She is asking for a loan in order to buy summer outfits, as the warm season is approaching and she wants to stock up.

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.
