San Pedro is a group in the city of Asunción that is comprised of 13 women who are all friends and neighbors in the city. They joined the Fundación Paraguaya's program because they saw it as a great way to obtain support for their businesses. They are currently in their first loan cycle and their goal is to reach the top level of the program.

We can talk about Mrs. Liz who lives with her five children in a humble dwelling, and through her hard work and sacrifice, provides for her family. She sells fruit salad on weekends. Liz defines herself as a hard-working, enterprising person who has always struggled to get ahead, meeting challenges head on. She works hard every day to give the best she can to her children so they do not have to go without like she did.

The loan she is requesting is to buy fruit such as apples, bananas, oranges, melons, plums and other types of fruit. This is so she can continue working to support her children.

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.
