The members of this committee engage in a number of business activities including clothes sales, sales of flavored ice drinks, empanadas, tortillas, croquettes, grilled meat, etc.

Most of the group's members are mothers and heads of their households. For this reason, they work hard every day to get ahead.

This committee is entering its 8th loan cycle. Every member has a sense of responsibility and a desire to make progress. They all attend their training sessions. They would like to avoid their children having to suffer the same work and educational limitations that they did and so they work doubly hard to provide their children with opportunities for progress.

One of the group's members, a very hard-working lady called Celina, works collecting and selling recyclable products such as plastic and paper. She passes through neighborhoods daily to collect garbage that can be recycled. She collects these products in a little cart that she owns and once she has a good quantity, she takes it all to sell and earn income for her family.

Celina is very happy to be a part of her committee and she is requesting a loan to buy food for her family such as meat, oil, flour, noodles, fruit and vegetables.

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.
