18 women from the city of Caaguazú, all of them enterprising and hardworking, heard about the program for Women Entrepreneurs of the Fundacion Paraguay and decided to get together and form their own group. They want to improve their living conditions by working together. One of those enterprising women is Señora Maura who sells chickens. She says that this has been her work for a long time. What makes her proud of what she does is that it is honest work and she is also doing very well. She is asking for a loan to buy chickens and subsequently resell them, as she always has a lot of customers and she wants to meet their demands. She is grateful to the Fundacion for the opportunity given her.

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.
