In this Group: Olga, Lourdes, Maria, Benigna, Blanca , Maria, Aquilina, Francisca, Mirna, Maxima , Lilian, Catalina, Cipriana, Gloria, Laura
This group is in its first cycle: essentially, they are following the steps to qualify for the first cycle.

Ms. Olga B. is a member of this group. She is 40 years old and has one son. She runs a small bakery in her house, on top of selling quiniela (football pools) in her house at the request of her customers.

Her husband works with her: his task is to prepare the bakery products she then serves to their customers. Her house, located in Zeballos Cue, is not very big, therefore she is saving in order to succeed in building an extra room for her shop.

The loan she is requesting will be used to buy tools for her bakery: a mixer and a kneading machine.

Note: There are several extra people in the photo since some of the women were accompanied by their daughters the day the photo was taken.

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.
