San Miguel Group
One of these women is Celia, who has worked selling chipas (a typical Paraguayan snack) for a very long time. She says that she has always had good sales, as chipas are consumed regardless of whether it is cold or hot, and this results in very good earnings. Her goal is to be able to continue growing, and in doing so, to help her family with their daily expenses.
Celia requests this loan to purchase starch, cheese, lard, anise, and other necessary condiments to make the chipa that she sells. She thanks the Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva for the opportunity that they are giving to her and to her group.

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.
