In this Group: Andrea, Emilia, Edith, Lidia, Maria Luisa , Candida, Tarciana, Evelina, Mariela, Rosa, Ceferina, Maria Santa, Maria Reina, Shyrley, De Los Santa
The committee came together thanks to Emilia who had started a different committee previously but it disbanded. She decided to invite her friends and neighbors to form a new group. Currently, the committee is in its second cycle in Fundación Paraguaya’s program. It has 15 members who invest in different activities like Andrea, who is group President.

She is 21 years old and is lives with Amalio who is a Bricklayer. They have a son and she invests her profits buying various goods at wholesale to later resell.

She is a very longsuffering woman despite her youth. At not having enough money to buy the quantity of products she needs for commerce she asked for a Kiva loan to buy her merchandise in order to sell them in better quantities and quality.

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.
