This committee is in its third loan cycle. The members work jointly so that each individual, and the group, can continue to grow. They try to fulfil all the responsibilities that each member has.

Here we can mention Mrs Ana Maria C.. She is 35 years old and has two children who stay in the house while she goes out in the morning to sell lottery tickets. She returns home to make their lunch and then goes out again in the afternoon to sell her tickets.

Ana Maria is a long-suffering woman who has a very difficult day every day because when she gets home from work she has to do her housework. She does everything to get herself and her children ahead in life as she is a single mother. Ana Maria has a very small, poorly-constructed, house. She works so that she can cover her home expenses and those of her two children who go to school. She is requesting this loan so that she can cover home expenses as the Christmas period is approaching and the income she makes from her business doesn't stretch far enough to cover the improvements that she would like to make on her home.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
