The "Pyahu Mba´apora" committee was started due to the initiative of Señora Celia. At present they are in their first loan cycle, with ten members. They are all women who have sacrificed, being of scarce resources, for which they receive very little attention or benefits. Because of this they are very pleased with the aid that the foundation gives them.
Celia tells us that she has a modest pantry in her house, where she sells consumer staples such as sugar, noodles, milk, and other things. She tells us that the majority of her neighbors buy from her and that thanks to that she has a good income with which she can maintain the house and help her family. She dreams of some day being able to have a great pantry with a lot better assortment of goods. She requests the loan for the purchase of sugar, noodles, milk, and other types of consumer staples, with which she will be able to be better supplied and to satisfy the demands of her clients.

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.
