They are all residents of the same neighborhood and work together closely in every job they do.

One of the members is Susana who currently is providing domestic services in various family homes. She does work such as laundry and ironing, general cleaning and cooking. She works all day long outside her home; therefore, her wish is to have a business that helps her with expenses in which she can stay at home and work from there.

She is requesting this loan to buy winter clothing (sweaters, pants, jackets) so that she can start selling clothing. In this way, she hopes to expand her income and her client base.

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.

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.
