The Oñondivepa committee is from the city of Curuguaty. The group is made up of 13 women who are mainly indigenous women. They all have families and carry out their own business activities. They are currently in their first loan cycle within Fundación Paraguaya's 'Rural Women's Committee Program'. Their main business activity is farming but they would like to be able to set up other businesses as well.

Bonifacia is one of the members of this group. She has a small, well-stocked grocery store where she provides all kinds of basic household products to her customers. She says that she has good sales because her business is the most well-stocked and she makes good profits as a result. She is very hopeful that Fundación Paraguaya and Kiva will be able to help her to continue growing her business.

Bonifacia is requesting this loan to buy sugar, flour, noodles, rice, milk, bread, etc. so that she will have a larger stock of products to offer 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.
