The committee La Alegria, or ‘happiness,’ was formed when several women from the San Isidro locality in Santani came together.

All the members cultivate agricultural products.

The members formed a very united group, one capable of accomplishing activities together that strengthen this committee. They are already in their seventh loan cycle.

Ms. Priscila, for example, harvests and plants her small farm, and now that planting time is coming closer, she needs labor to plow the land. She is requesting the loan to be able to pay for this labor so she can work on her farm again.

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.

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.
