In this Group: Marcia Lismey
Señorita Marcia is single, has no children, and lives in her mother's house in the Santa Ana neighborhood of the City of Caacupé. Marcia worked as a domestic employee in a family home and little by little was saving her money in order to launch her own business, taking advantage of the privileged location of her house, which is in front of a main plaza where many people pass daily.

The loan that she is requesting is for the purchase of merchandise such as: sugar, rice, yerba (an herb), candy and other items. She is very grateful to the organization for their valuable help, and hopes to perform well as she continues to work with the Paraguaya Foundation and Kiva.

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.
