The Santa Catalina Group is named in honor of the patron saint of the neighborhood in which its members reside. There are 19 women, all of whom are hard-working, determined to get ahead, and they support their families through their jobs. They are in the tenth second-program cycle for which they display great enthusiasm and determination.

Juliana is a member of the group. She is president and tells us that because the group members are so close, they are easily getting through each cycle as they move forward. Juliana sells all kinds of cosmetics, all of which are recognized brands, and with this income she supports her family. She describes herself as a hard-working person and a fighter.

Juliana wants to continue building her business, so she is seeking a loan so that she can buy more cosmetics to ensure that she always has a good stock of a variety of products for 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.
