This committee is entering its ninth loan cycle with 13 members. The group is noted in the neighborhood for being very united, supportive and responsible. The members have a great, entrepreneurial spirit since they are responsible and try hard to reach all their goals. By acquiring this loan, they see many doors opening to them which will enable them to make progress in their business undertakings.

Maria Josefina is a very self-sacrificing woman who leads both the group and her family. She supports her household and would like to pull herself and her family out of the poverty in which they find themselves. For this reason, she works raising animals. In her city, this is a business that allows people to make good income. It is a primary business activity.

Maria Josefina would like to gain the help of Kiva lenders, through the loan that she is requesting, so that she can buy balanced feed and also vaccines for the animals that she raises and then sells.

About Fundación Paraguaya

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.
