This is Rosa Mistica group's first year together and is made up of a committee of women who all work and support one another to succeed. They are taking part in a survey about eliminating poverty, and three of the members live below the poverty line.

Maria is one of the members, who, in her latest survey, had a level one poverty rating, meaning that her income is very low and are below the poverty line. However, she knows that through her hard work she can continue to grow. She makes a living selling cleaning products through micro-franchises offered by the foundation.

Maria is requesting this loan to buy a cleaning micro-franchise, which will enable her to keep working and making cleaning products, which she then sells. She is grateful for the opportunity that all the members are receiving as it will help them and their families a great deal.

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.

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.
