View original language description ↓
The committee “Fighting for Progress” was born when a member of another committee decided to form her own group.

The participants work in different activities, like selling fruits, clothes, jewelry, fast food, ice cream; others have stores where they sell groceries like sugar, rice, flour, soft drinks, juices, bread, etc.

They are asking for a loan so the can purchase clothes, jewelry, sugar, rice, soft drinks, etc., and others need to get material to create their products like fabric, blenders, etc.

Each participant receives approximately G 900,000 ($190 USD) each.

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.
