The Maria Auxiliadora Committee was formed by several neighbors from the community of Barrio 3 Tapiracuai in the city of San Estanislao (Santaní). It is starting its second loan cycle with 12 members. The group is known in their neighborhood for having members who are united, supportive, and responsible. All of them possess a great entrepreneurial spirit as they go about their daily activities in hopes of improving their quality of life.

All of the members raise animals. Sra. Zulmira serves as president of the group. She raises animals and fattens them for eventual resale. Zulmira earns her living in this manner so that she can obtain the necessary income to support her children. Since there is a good level of demand in her area, Zulmira wants to do a better job of completing her orders. For this reason, she is requesting a loan through Kiva and Fundación Paraguaya to buy balanced feed, vaccines, and medicines so that she can maintain animals that are of high quality.

All of the women in the committee are very excited to increase productivity in their business activities.

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.
