The “Dulce Esperanza” (Sweet Hope) committee formed when 16 neighbors from the city of Mariano Roque Alonso joined together wanting to help their families by means of this opportunity the Fundación is giving them to form a group of companions.

Demetria is one of the committee members. She works as a seamstress and as an events decorator. She’s a very hardworking, creative, active woman who very much wants to get ahead. She has five children and her husband’s an electrician.

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.
