This group, called Nueva Esperanza, is made up of 16 members who invest the support they get from the foundation into their various lines of work. They are in their second lending cycle with the program Comite de Mujeres Emprendedoras and they want to keep growing with the help of the foundation.

Lucina, 33, is a merchant with a small but well-stocked store. She has two children, ages 13 and 10, who are in school. She tells us that her children are her reason for being and that they motivate her to keep fighting. She has many sales orders, which is why she asks for a loan to be able to complete those orders.

Lucina asks for a loan to buy corn, pasta, sugar, flour and other products to stock her store and meet her customers' demand.

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.
