The women of this committee are from the San Francisco neighborhood in the city of Caacupé.

They are very hardworking and self-sacrificing women, and thanks to their Fundación loans they can grow their businesses and help support their families.

They are very grateful for the trust and support they get because it enables them to make life better for themselves and their families.

The committee has been working with Fundación for four years and has completed its sixteenth loan cycle. One of its members, María, earns her living making and selling chips. She cooks them in her house in ovens she heats with wood she buys from others.

She works every day with help from her family, and she's got vendors to sell her product, too. She says the chip sales help her out quite a bit and are practically the only source of income her family has. She is seeking a loan to buy supplies like firewood, starch, cheese, oil, etc.

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.
