María Cristina who lives in the Tacuapi Compañía 40 kilometers from the Curuguaty office spearheaded the formation of this committee. The committee chose the name “San Blas” and they are in the second cycle with 10 members. All the women are very self-denying and mutually supportive in order to get ahead together.

Ramona has a snack bar or kiosk where she sells beverages and all kinds of dishes prepared by herself. She prepares all sorts of fast food daily like turnovers, hamburgers, croquettes, and others to sell to people who often can’t return home to have lunch or breakfast so she takes care of very hygienically preparing their meals and sell them. Thanks to the quality of her products she has many customers and she wants to stay at this level so she asks for a loan in order to acquire beverages and ingredients to prepare her food.

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.
