A few women coming from the town of Santaní have joined forces to form the “Joaju” Committee. They all work together in the town of Santaní and for this reason they have chosen to name the group Joaju, meaning “union”.
They all engage in breeding and selling animals, an activity thanks to which they help providing for their children and relatives. It is a very hard job, but they do it for the wellbeing of their families.
Felicia is the president, and she is requesting a loan to buy balanced feed for her animals, thus succeeding in feeding them.

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.
