Jovina and Ortencia work selling chipas (cheese buns). Every day, they work together in the preparation. They say that, thanks to the loan, they were able to increase their customer base because they built a bigger oven.

This time, they are requesting a loan for the purchase of ingredients for chipa, which is a typical Paraguayan food. They wish to buy starch, cheese, anise, eggs, and other items. They are grateful for the great help that they receive, because thanks to this, they are expanding and helping their families.

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.
