The group Nueva Esperanza is in their 4th cycle with the Women's Committee program, where each one is giving it their all to be able to grow and invest in their respective work. They are part of the poverty elimination survey that assesses each person's situation.

Virginia sells fish. She says that it's going very well, since fish is in high demand in the area of the city where she works. She comments that through her sales she helps her family to cover their necessities. She is hardworking, beginning her day very early and making that sacrifice for her work.

She asks for a loan to invest in the purchase of more fish for sale, since she wants to stock up and have a good variety to offer to her customers.

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.
