Eligio wants to take advantage of this opportunity so that he can have another source of income. With this equipment, he can use it to produce additional earnings for his family. He is grateful for this new opportunity he has received and it will be of great help.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is designed for young people aged 15 to 25 whose families are living in poverty and who wish to start a new business or improve an existing business. As part of its Youth Entrepreneurship program, Fundación Paraguaya’s staff members offer mentorship, as well as training courses and workshops in finance and business administration. Borrowers also receive standard benefits like health coverage and life insurance. This type of loan is not offered by most other financial institutions in Paraguay. Young borrowers are often considered to be too risky because they lack prior credit history or business experience.

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.

Concurrent and Successive Loans

Our Field Partners often work with borrowers over a series of loans as the borrowers build credit, take out bigger loans, and expand their businesses. In order to make it easier for our Field Partners to post loans for borrowers who have been listed on Kiva before, we allow them to post successive and concurrent loans for their Kiva borrowers. This means that our Field Partners are able to post a borrower's second, third, etc., loan on Kiva without having to re-enter all of the borrower's information.

This borrower has been listed on Kiva before, so you'll see an updated loan description, as well as excerpts of the original descriptions from earlier loans. Most borrowers take out loans consecutively, meaning that they receive a second loan after having repaid the first. However, sometimes our Field Partners give out concurrent loans, allowing borrowers to take out one primary loan and a secondary "add-on" loan along with it. These "add-on" loans are typically smaller than the borrower's primary loan and serve a different purpose. Because Field Partners can now post loans as successive and concurrent loans, you will be able to track borrower progress over time and see the various ways a borrower is working with our Field Partners through funds from Kiva’s lenders.
