This committee was started in the Santo Domingo neighborhood in the city of Caaguazú. Hermelinda G. took part in an informational meeting in her area and she came up with the idea of starting a committe on her block with her neighbors. They got together with lots of enthusiasm, seventeen women in all, each with her own independent job. They've got the desire and the responsibility they need and they all help each other and work as a team.

Hermelinda needs a loan to get more pantry items. She needs to buy a lot of products that, for lack of means, she couldn't get before. She's a very devoted mother and wants her children to have a much better life than she had.

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.
