This is a group consisting of 15 women who have a common aim: to improve the living conditions of their families. They live in a very rural and rustic neighborhood of the city of Santaní. Therefore, the occupation of all members of the group is rearing domestic animals as work animals or for selling.

One of the members of the group is Gregoria, a very enterprising and hard-working woman. She and her husband struggle every day to get ahead. She works raising animals like chickens, ducks, and pigs. She says that this helps her family a lot because she can sell the animals she raises at fairs and on the market.

She asks for a loan to invest it in the purchase of feed for her animals. She wants them to grow well so that she can sell them. All members of the group are happy with the opportunity they are offered to continue to get ahead.

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.
