The communal bank "Arroyo Syry" is located in the city of Paraguarí. This communal bank is comprised of 17 women who decided to get together and form a group so that they could access the assistance offered by the Fundacion Paraguaya. They see this loan as an opportunity for some of them to strengthen their businesses and increase their income, and for others as an opportunity to start up a new business. In this way, the members of this group can improve their family's quality of life.

Silvina says that the group has helped her a lot; her small business is growing thanks to all of the training and loans she has received. She has a business selling milk, and she says that her day begins in the early hours of the morning, because she has to go out to deliver the milk to her customers. Silvina is a very hardworking person who strives to improve herself each day.

Silvina is requesting this loan to invest in the purchase of milk, because she wants to have a good inventory to offer to her customers. She is, once again, grateful for the help that she is receiving.

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.
