The “María de Los Angeles” Communal Bank was formed when several neighbors in the city of Santani came together. They are very hardworking women who put forth all their effort to get ahead and help their families.

Librada is part of this group and notes that she is a street vendor, selling all kinds of products, such as sheets, blankets, bedspreads and other items. She adds that her work requires a lot of sacrifice because she has to go through the streets.

She is requesting the loan to purchase sheets and bedspreads so that she can continue working and giving her family what they need to lead a life of dignity.

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.
