The "Kuña Guapa Isla Umbugua" women's communal bank was formed in 2011. They are in their second loan cycle, working jointly and supportively in the program. In addition to the work that each does independently, they also carry out activities jointly, in order to raise monies with the aim of having a capital fund within the group. At the same time they help one another to attain their objective, which is to work to support their families financially.

This is Victorina's story: She sells clothing, and also has a stand selling food and drinks. She tells us that she supports the household, as she became a widow two years ago, and she alone has all the responsibility. She wishes to keep working so that she can help her family with day-to-day expenses.

She is applying for the loan in order to buy clothing, enabling her to stock up, and that way have more variety to offer her customers. She is grateful for the help she is receiving, as it will be very useful to her.

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.

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.
