The San José Obrero Committee was initiated on December 1, 2008, thanks to its current Director General, María Justa F., who approached the adviser at a loan renewal meeting in her area to find out how the Women's Committee worked. Now on their sixth loan cycle, the members are very happy with the Program. They all work together, providing mutual support to achieve the goals they share.

Mrs. F. earns her living selling natural remedies. It's worth noting that natural medicines are in broad use among all Paraguayan families, for infusions taken in the morning and to treat many ailments, so they make for a profitable business. Mrs. F. earns a nice profit and would like to buy remedies in quantity in order to process and package them, which is why she is seeking a loan.

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.
