The committee named “San José Obrero” was started through the initiative of Sra. Nelly. She wanted to help her friends, so she invited them and started this group which is in its first loan cycle.

Nelly operates a food pantry in her house and it contains everything that her neighbors need. Her business is always well-stocked. Thanks to her work, she is able to move forward and help her family. Nelly is requesting a loan so that she can buy noodles, sugar, rice, oil, and other products that are in high demand. For this reason, she wants her business to be stocked with these items.

The members of this group are grateful for the opportunity they have received and it will be of great help.

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.
