This current committee was started by Sra. Olga V., who lives at Km 8 Monday in Ciudad del Este. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form this committee in her area.

The committee is named “Lucerito” and started its fifth loan cycle with 17 members. This group stands out in the neighborhood for being close-knit, supportive, and responsible. The members possess a great entrepreneurial spirit and already work to collect money for the committee fund.

One of these enterprising women is Ramona A., who sells seasonal fruit grown by her neighbors and members of the committee. She displays her products at a stand in front of her house. Ramona works and constantly helps with the household expenses (daily meals). The loan she is requesting will be used to buy fruits such as oranges, tangerines, bananas, and pineapples.

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.
