The communal bank "Mujeres Trabajadoras" is made up of women who are developing a variety of independent businesses, such as raising and selling animals and buying animal feed for them.

One of the members, Lucina, raises animals. She puts a lot of care and effort into her work, because not only does she care for the animals but she also feeds them, bathes them, provides them with sufficient space, etc. With this business, she manages to support herself and her family.

She will use this loan to re-invest in her business. She will obtain a greater variety of animals to raise and later sell, this way generating more income.

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.
