Mrs. Silvina A. owns a small grocery store that receives several customers every day. She therefore decided to set up a small group of women entrepreneurs among the neighbors on her block. She invited the most responsible ones who were willing to work hard to get ahead in their daily jobs. There are 18 of them who have independent jobs and who will receive a proportion of the loan depending on how long they have been involved in the group.

These members depend largely on the credit support given them by the Paraguaya Foundation which has helped them greatly to establish their individual businesses.

Mrs. Silvina plans to use the loan to stock her grocery store.

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.
