This group of women called Kuña Guapa was formed on August 24, 2009 in the region of J. A. Saldivar with help from the Director of Finance Sra. Francisca F.. She had started another group which broke up as several members failed to make their loan repayments. Then she invited other neighbours to form a new group which has been working successfully. It is now in its fifth loan cycle, and everyone is getting on well and supporting each other.

One of the members is Sra. Maria who makes and sells cakes. She is an active woman who works hard to support her family. She takes orders for snacks, but more especially for cakes for special occasions. As the items she bakes are of high quality, she has a constant stream of orders. Maria is seeking a loan so she can buy more ingredients for the cakes.

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.
