The 'Amazonas' group has 11 female members who are from the city of Caacupé. They are all heads of household who work so that they can provide their families with all the comforts they can and thereby avoid them having to suffer hardship. With this in mind, they joined Fundación Paraguaya's 'Entrepreneurial Women' program and they are currently in their second cycle of the program.

One of these self-sacrificing women is Ramona who tells us that her business is selling all kinds of drinks. She has a small business which she has been able to keep going through a lot of hard work and sacrifice. She tells us that she has very good sales and this helps her to provide for her household and her family. She would like to continue investing in her business.

Ramona is requesting this loan to buy beer, wine, soda, and other products with which to stock her business. This will enable her to have more stock to offer her customers.

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.
