The committee “Ko´e Pyta” is made up of various neighbors in the city of Santaní. They are 12 hardworking and enterprising women who truly want to get ahead and work to give their families everything that they could not have growing up.

One of these women is Señora Ceveriana, who works in retail. She owns a small, well-stocked grocery store that supplies the kitchens in her neighborhood and always offers a good variety of products. Señora Ceveriana recounts that her store grew very slowly but now, thanks to her hard work and sacrifice, it has become the store it is now. She is requesting this loan to buy vegetables, fruits, dairy products, baked goods, and other food items to stock her store.

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.
