This group is from Capiata and has been around for two years. With intense work, it has grown socially as well as economically. They are recognized in the area as hard-working women.
They have been through difficult trials since many of the members, on occasion, do not meet their responsibilities.
One of the members is Maria, who buys and sells drinks in a bar that she has in her home.
With this activity, she obtains good income and is thinking of preparing and restocking a large quantity of varied merchandise for the end of the year.
So, she is seeking the loan through the group made up of her and her friends.
She comments that she feels very proud to be part of the group since, beyond the loan, they encourage unity, help and solidarity among each other, and help each other in personal issues as well.

About Fundación Paraguaya

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.
