The group "Kuña guapa" is in its second loan cycle in the women's committee program. It is from the city of Curuguaty, which is in a zone a bit removed from the central zone and yet is growing. It is a zone where access is difficult, and for this reason the members of this group want to strive to grow and give the zone where they live a better environment and have it grow slowly.

Señora Laura, one of the members, works as a street vendor of all types of products, such as clothing and shoes, and through this work she strives to give her family what they need. She desires that with the passing of time and through the help of everyone in her zone, they can continue to improve their surroundings and thus offer better security to their families and also be able to obtain a better future for them.

She is applying for this loan to buy items to sell, such as clothing, shoes, and dry goods articles in general, and in this way be able to continue growing in her business and thus give her family what they need to have a life without privations.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is designed for poor clients living in rural areas with high levels of crime and social conflict. These clients, working primarily in agriculture, are often ineligible for credit from formal financial institutions because of the high-crime area they live in, their lack of adequate collateral (like a land title), and the likelihood of low agricultural production due to bad weather or pests. Fundación Paraguaya is committed to serving these clients with loans and other wraparound services tailored to their needs. It also provides clients working in agriculture with access to discounted training courses at a local agricultural school to teach them how to improve their crop yields.

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.
