María, who lives at Km 14 Acaray in Minga Guazú municipality, is responsible for forming this group. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form the group in this area. The group is called "Mujeres SolidA.." They are on their 6th loan, and have 16 members.

It is a very united, caring and responsible group. The members have a great enterprising spirit. They stay updated on the group's businesses, and do fundraising events for the petty cash fund and to motivate one another. They intend to complete this stage by fully meeting their responsibility to the institution. Acquiring the loan opens many doors to progress.

María sells meals and fruit. When it's very hot, she even prepares fruit salad for dessert, after a delicious plate of the home-cooked food that she prepares. Many of her customers are people with little opportunity to return home at lunchtime, and that's why she devotes a lot of care and effort to her work. She wants the loan in order to expand her variety of fruit, and at the same time, have a greater quantity of foodstuffs to prepare more home-cooked meals.

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.
