This group is from the city of Encarnación and was started as a result of one of its members contacting Fundación Paraguaya. The group is in its 11th loan cycle and has been working since 2006. They want to continue growing.

Sra. Maria took up this challenge. She is married to Sr. Michel and they have two children. Maria has been a merchant for many years, selling all types of products. She has very good sales since she always offers a good variety to her customers, who very much enjoy having this option.

Maria is requesting a loan so that she can buy fabrics and other supplies in order to restock her business and continue providing the variety that her customers are accustomed to having. All of the women in this group engage in various productive activities that allow them to help themselves.

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.
