The “Bitawa” committee is in its first cycle with ten women members all of which are from an indigenous community in the city of Villa Ygatimi. They are happy about this opportunity they are getting because few would risk taking them on but the Fundación has. They all work raising small farm animals like pigs, chickens, goats, sheep and others. The group president is Domitila and her dream is that her girlfriends are able to get ahead and overcome everything. She’s asking for the loan to buy nutritionally balanced animal feed to feed and care for her animals.

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.
