In this Group: Aurelia Rosa, Catalina, Vidalia, Lidia, Mabel, Myrian, Wilma, Margarita, Gloria, Graciela, Norma, Virna, Adelaida, Estelvina, Ninfa, Sonia
The “Prosperidad” (Prosperity) committee was formed when several neighbors in the city of Villa Elisa decided to join together. All of the group members have independent activities: some are in sales, others are hairdressers and some prepare fast food.

The members formed a very unified and capable group able to undertake activities together that strengthen their companionship.

One of the group members is Aurelia R. who sells food in a small snack bar in her home. She gets up very early in the morning every day to prepare traditional dishes from the area like: empanadas (turnovers), milanesas (breaded meat), eggs and chipas (corn and cheese bread). Her meals are prepared very hygienically with new and fresh ingredients so customers come by frequently to enjoy Aurelia’s dishes.

She is asking for funding to buy the ingredients that she normally uses to prepare her meals.

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.
