The women's community bank Kuña Kyrey is beginning it's first cycle in which all of them work together and with solidarity within the program. They do jobs together and in this way are able to save a little, so that they can face whatever setbacks may arise.

Sixta is one of the community bank members who makes a living by sewing sheets and covers. She tells us that through her job she has been able to get her family ahead and help them to have a life without hardships or restrictions.

Sixta is asking for a loan to buy more fabric and to better stock up for her orders. In this way she will sell more sheet sets, so that she can earn a higher income and improve her and her family's standard of living.

Sixta is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the opportunity they've offered, since the work they do is very important and through them they will develop further and with fewer drawbacks to their work.

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.
