The communal bank "El Progreso" (Progress) originated from classes that were done in the neighborhood. All of the members are acquaintances and neighbors from the same area. The goal of each of the women is to work, to form a spirit of solidarity, and to achieve the maximum level of the program.

Estanilaa is the president of the group. Currently she is a housewife, but she is beginning to sell clothing, and her desire is to sell it independently. Estanilaa will give the utmost effort so that her group progresses and succeeds. This is how she will be able to execute her business plan.

Estanilaa is applying for this loan to buy garments of all types which will allow her to begin working and attracting customers. She is thankful for the opportunity given to her by Kiva and Fundacion Paraguaya.

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.
