This group from the city of Luque is known as "Tres Fronteras". There are 21 members who are neighbors and friends. They all meet with the hope of a better future for their children and families. The women are heads of their families that want to fight in order to get ahead.

One of the members, Berna, is a craftswoman, working with karanday (a type of wood). She has been with her partner Lucilo for 11 years, who works selling the products that she makes. They have 4 young children who are in school. She tells us that together they are helping themselves to move forward.

She asks for a loan to buy karanday, which is the main material that she needs to make her crafts.

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.
