This group is from the city of Encarnación and came about because of contacts one of the members in the area had with the foundation's loan officer who, after learning how the program worked, decided to encourage her friends and neighbors. Currently the group is in its 18th loan cycle and has been working with the Foundation since the year 2006.

One of the group's members is Ms. Alicia who is married with two children. She tells us she has a small grocery store in her home, and her husband earns a living selling natural gas, and they also provide rental services for children's events. They both help each other get the family ahead. Alicia comments that she is doing very well with her sales and so she is requesting the loan, so she may stock her business, giving it more variety in order to continue bringing in income.

She wishes to purchase grocery items, drinks, dairy products, bakery items and other things. She appreciates the foundation and Kiva for this opportunity for progress they are being given.

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.
