The committee Damas del Bicentenario (Ladies of the Bicentennial) can be found working in the city of San Lorenzo. Their committee was formed about two years ago. They have learned to know each other and to organize themselves, paying attention to the reality of their situations. Every week they pay a little fee into their petty cash, and they are an excellent committee. They have helped with the formation of other committees in the zone where they live, also helping those people who can use their help.

Senora Alba has a little store, and she wants, through the loan, to be able to stock her little establishment with more products so that she can offer her customers more variety than she has now, and in addition to be able to assure her sustenance and that of her family.

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.

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.
