* not pictured
The Kuña Joaju committee has a total of 10 members. All of them are very hardworking and enterprising women with few resources. They started the group among neighbors and friends, and now they are in their third cycle.

Irene is one of the members. She raises animals such as chickens and pigs. She remarks that her work is very hard, since it requires a lot of physical and mental effort. She has to be on call 24 hours a day so nothing will happen to her animals. Her goal is to keep working and thus keep being able to help her family.

She is asking for the loan to buy small pigs and feed for them and the other animals she has. She is grateful to the Foundation and to Kiva for the opportunity she is receiving, as many of them wouldn't have received these opportunities in other institutions.

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.
