This group from the San Pedro neighborhood is in operation and is made up by Norma, who is a clothing merchant.

She travels to Argentina to buy her merchandise because prices in the neighboring country are much lower than in the local marketplace.

Once she has sufficient merchandise she travels to several locations to offer it to employees of private and public firms who buy the clothes on credit.

She comments that her activities produce good profits that help provide the basics for her family. In the future, she hopes to buy a vehicle that will make her travels to visit customers easier.

She is asking for a loan for a new trip to buy large quantities of clothing appropriate for the winter season, like sweaters, jackets, pants, etc., that is about to start in Paraguay.

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.
