The “Renacer” (To be Reborn) committee was born over two years ago thanks to the initiative and support from another committee active in that place at that time. This committee is in Barcequillo and during these two years of intense work they have grown both socially and economically; they are known there for being very hard-working women.

One of the workers is Idalina who sells prepared food to people who pass by her house. Among the items she prepares are: turnovers, breaded steaks, fish stews, locros (a stew composed chiefly of winter squash, potatoes, tender corn, meat or fish), bori-bori (a chicken soup with corn dumplings), etc.

Preparation of all these dishes requires a heavy investment due to gas consumption. Because of this, she wants to buy an electric stove with two-burner slates because they will not use as much energy.

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.
