The San Miguel Committee was formed by a group of neighbors and friends from the city of San Lorenzo. They heard about the Program of Women Entrepreneurs and decided to gather together to form their own committee. There are currently 18 members. All of them work hard and responsibly. These female heads of household decided to find a way to provide for the daily needs of their children and their families.

Sra. Maria prepares and sells food. She has a small vending post at the market. Maria wakes up early in the morning and heads to work so that she can prepare and sell her dishes. Someday she hopes to expand her small vending post so that she can accommodate more customers.

Maria is requesting a loan so that she can buy everything she needs for preparing her dishes such as meat, chicken, vegetables, oil, eggs, and other items. She has faith that this loan will help her generate more income.

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.

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.
