In the city of Yaguarón, Km. 56, 5 miles from the Department of Paraguarí, a group of women got together to form a committee to request for a loan. From that idea, a meeting was coordinated to learn more about the program. Right after that, they agreed to the conditions of the same as this meant a great opportunity to increase their work capital and receive training. They are hard working women and they've never received any financial aid.
The committee is called Espíritu Santo (Holy Spirit). This group is composed by 17 women; they work every day to improve their quality of life as well as their families’. All the members are very energetic women, who have already invested the money in their specific activities.

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.
