Este comité originó a través de promociones que se realizaron en el barrio. Todas las integrantes son de la misma zona, todas ellas amigas y vecinas, que vieron en el programa de la fundación paraguaya una gran oportunidad de progreso. El objetivo de ellas es trabajar en forma conjunta, fomentar el espíritu solidario y consolidar el grupo.
La Sra. Celia es miembro del grupo y nos cuenta que trabaja desde muy temprano en su despensa, atendiendo a los clientes y también cargando los productos que tiene. Nos comenta que empezó con un pequeño negocio, pero que gracias a su esfuerzo, sacrificio y trabajo ha podido ir creciendo y mejorando su negocio.
Ella se acerca hasta la fundación para pedir una ayuda, ya que quiere un préstamo para invertirlo en la compra de comestibles, bebidas, enlatados, verduras, hortalizas y demás, con lo cual podrá dar una buena variedad a sus clientes.

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.
