Saldivar on July 20th 2009 thanks to Mrs Basilisa A. who had already participated in the “Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras” (Enterprising Women Communal Bank) and knew how it worked. She contacted the Fundación Paraguaya advisor and started working with the organization again. Basilisa managed to bring together 15 women and they are all working happily on their third loan cycle in the program. One of the members is Pabla who owns a fruit and vegetable store in which she sells different fruits, as well as salads, juices, desserts, etc.

Pabla provides good service and hygiene which means that her fruit and vegetable store is very popular with the locals. It also means that she has a number of steady customers.

Pabla would like to increase her income, acquiring a wider range of seasonal fruits and vegetables in order to obtain better profits.

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.
