San Rafael is a committee of the Mujeres Emprendedoras [Enterprising Women] program of Fundación Paraguaya. This is their tenth loan. The committee has 19 members. All of them are sacrificing and fighting women, each with a family to raise.

It bears mentioning the case of Mrs. Juliana V., who has small fruit stand on Carreteras de López Avenue. She goes to the wholesale food market to buy fruit. She also sells natural juices. She has a regular and assured client base, as her products are much in demand. With the income that she makes day-by-day, she helps out her husband.

Juliana comments that she entered the committee with the idea of building her small business, and now she is achieving that goal. For that, she is grateful to Fundación Paraguaya. The committee is old, but is working hard to get ahead.

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.
