The women’s committee called “Sagrado Corazón de Jesús” (Sacred Heart of Jesus) was formed on June 10, 2010 thanks to Celeste who has a hardware store and was very interested by the promotion the advisor carried out in the area. She then described the way the groups work and about the loan to some friends and they formed the group, contacted the advisor and formed the group with 17 members who are working very comfortably and are now in their 3rd cycle. It is a group that stands out because of its collaborative work and mutual support within the program.

Celeste hopes to have this loan to acquire new hardware items to increase sales with more variety.

All the members carry out fund raising activities. They help each other reach common goals that they all have within the group and with Fundación Paraguaya.

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.
