The women in this group are from the Kennedy neighborhood in the city of Caacupé. These united women have already been in this program for about 6 to 7 years. They regularly pursue activities together. They not only save their money, but they also have a savings account, which they use as a guarantee against any unforeseen obstacles that arise. They are very thankful for Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for this opportunity and for the constant training they receive. Thanks to the program, they learn to save, work in teams, and create sources of income that help their support their families since some of these women are heads of households.

Gloria is a very hard-working and active member of the group. She has been a businesswoman for many years, and she supplies necessary goods for her neighborhood. Mrs. Gloria has a very close family, and they help to support each other. In this way, her family goes forward in the best way possible. At this time, she is requesting a loan to buy merchandise for her business because sometimes her clients buy goods on credit. They repay her monthly or twice monthly. With this loan, she will buy rice, oil, noodles, canned goods, dairy products, baked goods, cured meat, mate leaves (used as a substitute for tea), and cleaning 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.
