San Roque is the name of the group which consists of 25 women from the city of San Lorenzo, all of whom are friends and neighbours from the same city. They got together with the desire to progress and get ahead as they wish to give their children and families a better future. They describe themselves as determined, hardworking and very honest women.

One of these hardworking women is Señora Caren who with a lot of effort and thanks to her sales of sheets, has been able to grow and get ahead. She says that she is doing very well as she has very good sales due to an established client base. She is asking for the loan to buy more sheets with which to stock up and have more in stock as well as be able to meet her customers' demands. She is grateful to both Kiva and the Fundacion for the opportunity they give her.

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.
