The “San Cayetano” committee was formed by the union of several neighbors in the city of Santani who decided to be part of the program for entrepreneurial women of the Paraguayan Foundation to be able to help their families through team work. Lilian raises livestock, such as chicken, pigs, cows and other, this helps her support her family and provide for their day to day needs. She indicates that her work is very hard and requires sacrifices because it's a full time job. Her goal is to be able to have more livestock so she can grow more. She requests a loan to buy feed for her livestock and have some in stock so that she doesn't run out. Her and her group are very happy to be helped by the Foundation and Kiva.

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.
