The women mentioned in this description belong to a group in the city of Caacupe. Most of these ladies grow plants on a large scale at home and sell them. Through their different activities, these humble women earn the income they need every day to support their families. All of them have made sacrifices in order to run their businesses.

One of these women is Sra. Salvadora Monzón, who sells plants. She and her husband work with plants all day to provide them good conditions so that they can be sold in different cities. The work is very tiring, but it has enabled her to provide her children an education so that they lack nothing. Salvadora wants to increase her sales and production, as well as make a few improvements to her home. She is requesting a loan to buy seeds, compost, and bags for lining flowerpots.

All of the members are grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for providing an important opportunity for them to improve their income and quality of life.

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.
