Maria Auxiliadora Group
In this Group: Zulmira, Teresa , Julia , Francisca , Teodolina , Myrian , Carolina , Marisa , Mirian , Felicita , Elvira
The Maria Auxiliadora group was formed when a number of residents from the Tacuruty community in the city of Santaní joined together. All of the members have their own independent activities, but they also work together on activities to raise capital for use in case of unexpected difficulties. The members have formed a very close group, able to work together well on activities that strengthen their camaraderie.

An example of hard work is Teresa, who has been able to help her family get ahead by raising pigs. She says that through her work she has been able to continue growing, but that it has taken a lot of sacrifice and effort. In spite of that, however, it is going very well for her, since she has good customers. She would like to continue with her work so that she can keep helping her family. Because of this, she is asking for a loan to purchase young pigs to raise and then sell.

She and her friends are very happy with the support of the foundation and Kiva.

About Fundación Paraguaya

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.
