The group is currently on its tenth loan cycle. Each of the members has their own business but they also have work that brings them together as a group.

One of the members is Mrs. Evangelista Gonzalez. She is 50 years old and she has 2 children who stay at home while she goes out to sell cleaning products in the mornings. She carries the products in a sack that she later fills with empty bottles for recycling. She comes home to have lunch ready and she goes out again afterward to sell the recyclable goods.

She is a much stressed woman, having to go out day after day with a very heavy load. When she comes home from work she has to do housework, doing all of this for the sake of her children. She is a single mother.

She requests a loan to purchase ingredients to be used to make the cleaning products she sells, such as detergents and household air fresheners among 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.
