The committee “La Esperanza” (The Hope) was formed as a result of several neighbors from the city of Chore-Santaní joining together. All of the committee members engage in independent businesses involving sales, producing charcoal, raising animals, and other trades. They have developed a close group that is capable of working together in activities that strengthen their friendship. The committee is in its second loan cycle and eager to move forward as a group.

Sra. Marina raises and sells pigs. She has been in this business for a long time. Even though she had to work extremely hard in the beginning, Marina was able to gain customers over time and develop a good reputation in her business. This has helped her overcome the competition. She is requesting a loan to buy balanced feed and medicines for her pigs. Marina wants to attract more customers, so she needs to maintain the level of quality in her products.

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.
