This credit committee started in the city of Paraguarí, and currently has 18 members. All the members are women head of households and work every day to support their families. They have pledged solidarity within the group, by working together respectfully and supporting one other.

Rocio has been raising pigs for several years. She can only handle a certain number of animals, but one day she dreams of having a farm so she can accommodate more animals. She works hard in order to provide her children with a better future, so that they will not have to make the same sacrifices as she does.

She is requesting a loan to buy more pigs, as well as nutrient-enriched feed. This loan will greatly help her in achieving her goals.

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.
