The group "Virgen de Lourdes" was formed because of Mrs. Bernardina, who became interested in the program. This group is in its first cycle and its members are learning to work together.

All this group’s members raise and sell farm animals, like hens, ducks, pigs and goats. It is a demanding job, but they do it in order to be able to help their families.

Saturnina, one of the group’s members, is requesting this loan to invest in feed for her animals. She wants to continue taking good care of them and then sell them.

About Fundación Paraguaya

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.
