The communal bank 8 de Diciembre was formed and has been working with the Fundación Paraguaya for two years. Most of the members are already working in a productive activity and it is thanks to the activity that each one of them is getting ahead.

Nelida is one of the members of this bank. She joined due to the necessity of having more income to pay the various household expenses and give her family everything they need. She is a traveling salesperson selling natural remedies and she also recycles materials such as aluminum, plastic, paper, iron, etc. She yearns for a better future for her children and this is why she pushes herself every day to give them the opportunity to study and to attain a better future.

She is asking for a loan to buy natural remedies to sell so she can continue working and getting ahead through her struggles.

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.
