The communal bank “Mujeres Unidas” (United Women) was born with the idea of growth that all of the members have, as they want to help their families by means of the work as a whole that they all do.

Elisa is one of the members who is a very hardworking person and who fights for her family to be able to give them everything they need. She is a dressmaker and also she has a small grocery store with everything that her customers need for the home. Thanks to her work and to the support of her family and her group she is getting ahead.

She is requesting this loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of cloth, thread and also supplies for her small grocery store, so that in this manner she can continue with her work as she has been doing it and thus help her family.

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.
