The 'Kuña Katupyry' committee is another group from Fundación Paraguaya's 'Entrepreneurial Women' program. They are from the town of Villa Ygatimi. Since the group started out, they have demonstrated unity and solidarity. Six of the group's members are indigenous people who never had access to loans from other companies.

One of the members of this group is Serafina who raises animals such as pigs and hens. She is a woman of limited financial resources but she is very hard-working. Her dream is to own a farm where she can raise more animals and thereby continue helping her family.

Serafina is requesting a loan to buy chicks and pigs to raise as she would like to be able to grow her business and have more animals which will make her good profits.

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.
