13 women from the city of Santaní came together with the plan of helping their families through their work. They want their children and relatives not to have to go through the same privations that they have done, and this is why they have decided to organize themselves and enter Fundación Paraguaya's program for entrepreneurial women.

One of the group's members is Señora Matilde. She works as a butcher, selling all types and cuts of meat. She comments that it has taken a while, but she has a solid customer base who always go to her. By means of this business, she has been able to succeed and move her family ahead in life.

She is requesting this loan for the purchase of cuts of meat, beef ribs, and more, with which she can stock up and meet her customers' orders. She is grateful to the Foundation for the opportunity which is being provided to this group.

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.
