The Mujeres Unidas communal bank is in its twenty-first cycle. They support the group with excellent performance. All of them are good friends and they always help each other and work together so they can grow together. The goal of each one of them is to continue working, to encourage a spirit of solidarity, and to support the unity of the group.

Obdulia has been the president of the group since the bank began. She got the other members together and, thanks to the help from Fundación Paraguaya and its training, they have been able to get ahead and help their families.

She is requesting the loan to buy meat, vegetables, condiments, and other ingredients with which she will continue making the food she sells.

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.
