The Comité Nueva Esperanza (new hope committee) is from the city of Caaguazú. They are currently in their fourth loan cycle. The group is comprised of humble, hardworking women who fight day-to-day in order to come out ahead. They decided to form a mutually supportive group and to work as a team—so responsibility is a very important factor. Each member has independent work which the Fundación Paraguaya helps support, giving them the opportunity to surmount barriers both personal and familial.

Maria is the president of the group. She makes her living selling electronic equipment, including spare parts for cell phones, radios, and televisions. She also tells us that her husband helps her in the business.

She is requesting this loan in order to buy spare parts for cell phones, radios, and televisions. With these, she will be able to stock up and to satisfy her clients' requests. She is a very active and responsible woman and is grateful to the Fundación Paraguaya for the support that it affords women who want to overcome the obstacles they face.

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.
