The “Paraíso Poty" committee was created through the union of several neighbors from the city of Santaní. All the members of the committee carry out their own independent business activities such as selling products. The members created a very united group. They are capable of carrying out activities together to strengthen their camaraderie. The group currently has 14 female members who work in an atmosphere of respect and mutual help.

One of the members of this group is Hipolita, who is a hard-working, tenacious, self-sacrificing and very entrepreneurial lady. She says that she raises and sells animals which makes her the income she needs to support her family. She would like to be able to continue in her work and so she and her committee are approaching Fundación Paraguaya. She is requesting her loan to buy animals and feed for the animals.

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.
