The Santa Lucia Committee was started more than two years ago with the help of another committee that works in the same area. During this time, the members have grown socially as well as financially. They are known in their area for being hardworking women.

One of the members is Sra. Mirian who sells fruit from a booth near her home. She also travels around the neighborhood selling fruits to businesses and other people. This activity is very important since it helps to feed her family. Mirian is taking this opportunity to request a loan so that she can buy more fruits such as oranges, apples, strawberries, pears, bananas, and other products.

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.
