Brief substance In Guatemala over the last decade, the small Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) sector has grown dramatically. However, there is a critical lack of data examining the impact of this sector growth on target communities. We utilize ethnographic case studies from the Guatemalan health care sector to examine the community-side effects of health care NGO proliferation. We demonstrate how the constraints of "doing business" and serving as proxy agents for government have restricted the sector's flexibility and capacity for local engagement. We consider how these factors, together with competition for limited funds and service duplication, create community burnout and fuels resource shopping. We conclude with a consideration of some recent promising developments in community-based development and call for a return to greater reflexivity in the sector
