Kuña Guapa is growing more and more every day because of the initiative of each of the members. They are female heads of their families who want to be able to help their own and improve the lives of their entire families.
Maria sells chipa [small cheese-flavoured rolls], a very popular traditional Paraguayan food. She sells her products on the street and says that it is going very well, but that she dreams of someday having her own storefront in order to expand.
She is requesting this loan for the purchase of chipa in order to stock up and keep working as she always has.

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.
