This group was started thanks to Ms. Gladys F., who lives in the Niño Jesús neighborhood, some 22 km away from the Carapeguá office.

The group was named Renacer, and it is currently in its 14th loan cycle. This group is comprised of 15 very hardworking and responsible women who sell things like lingerie, food, groceries, and apparel, among other goods.

Some of the women already had a job before joining the group, nevertheless, they joined because they wanted to improve their businesses. Other members, however, are working for the first time, not counting looking after their families.

These women thank Fundacion Paraguaya for the help because with it, they have been able to develop their work skills as a team.

Ms. Crescencia has been selling apparel for several years. She gets up very early in the morning to go out and sell her merchandise. She is a street vendor, and now, because of her previous loans, she uses a motorcycle for work.

Ms. Crescencia would like to give special thanks to Fundacion Paraguaya because with their help, she has been able to increase her capital and expand her business, but she is once again requesting a loan so that she can obtain more apparel and set up her own clothing store.

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.
