This Group was founded by Ms. Beata who invited her neighbors to form a committee. All of the members of the committee are engaged in independent businesses such as sales, raising animals, etc. The members are a very united group who participate in joint activities that strengthen their camaraderie. This committee is already in their third loan cycle and, throughout this time, they have shown punctuality, solidarity, and union among the partners.

One of the members is Ms. Gregoria F. who raises and sells small animals such as chickens, ducks, pigs, and others. When the need arises, she sells them in order to raise money to support her family. She is very happy with the group and is requesting this loan to buy material as she wishes to build pigpens and henhouses with better accommodations for her animals.

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.
