The contact for this group is one of the members; she was motivated by the idea of helping her friends through the Enterprising Women Program of the Fundación Paraguaya. She invited her friends and neighbors to get together, and in this way the group called Santa Lucia was started.

Mirtha has a business selling milk, and her partner, Nery, has been working as a driver for 14 years. They have 2 children who are very young and who go to school. She tells us that she works from the very early hours of the morning, since she has to deliver the milk that she sells to the tables of her customers in time for breakfast. Her goal is to be able to continue to grow her business so that she can continue to help her family.

Mirtha requests a loan to buy jars, containers and milk. In this way, she will be able to work better and offer better service to her customers.

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.
