This group formed via Jorgelina L. de Valdez. She found out about the Fundacion Paraguaya and the program thanks to members of another group.

One of the members, Isidora E. de Garcia, is 46 and has eight children. She is a self-sacrificing woman. For eleven years she has been selling chipas, a typical corn-bread street snack in Paraguay, in the Lambare zone. She also travels to the neighborhoods and other places to sell her chipas.

She has been in the group for two years. She currently has a business in her house as well. She values and is thankful for this initiative by the Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras. Because of this she can help her husband with the household expenses and the children’s school expenses.

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.
