The group Barrio Maria Auxiliadora is made up of 19 adult women. They live in La Compañía Cabañas in the city of Caacupé.

The group is in their tenth cycle of receiving an average of 578,000 PYG ($113) per member. They bought products such as rice, milk, meat, noodles, soft drinks, seeds for planting, and new and used clothes. It requires a lot more effort to market these products in the streets as some of the members do.

This group is very united. Every week end they carry out activities to increase and capitalize upon the group’s savings.

All of the group members are grateful to the Fundación Paraguaya for the support they are receiving. They are grateful not only for the loans they have received, but also for the good advice. They appreciate the opportunities offered to create small businesses that generate economic resources and employment for family members.

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.
