The “Nueva Esperanza” (New Hope) committee has finished its second cycle problem-free so has decided to advance to the third cycle currently with 15 members. Like the other committees, the members are very self-sacrificing women of scarce resources with few opportunities for work. But thanks to support from the Fundación through the training they’ve managed to increase their income thus helping their families.

One of the group members is Elvira who sells pork. Thanks to this work she’s been able to help her family cover expenses that arise daily at home. She tells us that her goal is to continue working in order to continue to support her family.

She is asking for the loan to buy pork to have better stock to offer her customers.

El comité “Nueva Esperanza" ha culminado el 2do ciclo sin ningún tipo de inconvenientes por lo que han decidido avanzar al tercer ciclo, contando actualmente con quince integrantes. Al igual que los demás comités, las integrantes son mujeres muy sacrificadas, y de escasos recursos, con muy pocas oportunidades de trabajar, pero gracias al apoyo que le está brindando la Fundación, a través de las capacitaciones, han logrado aumentar sus ingresos y de esa forma poder ayudar a sus familias.
Una de las miembros es la señora Elvira, quien se dedica a la venta de carne de cerdo y es gracias a este trabajo que ella ha podido ayudar a su familia y cubrir los gastos que día a día surgen en la casa. Ella nos dice que su meta es seguir trabajando y de esa forma poder seguir manteniendo a su familia.
Ella solicita el crédito para la compra de carne, y de esa forma poder estar abastecida para poder tener más stock para poder ofrecer a sus clientes.

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.
