Divino Niño Jesus (Holy Child Jesus) is a group working their first cycle of the women Committee’s program. These are hardworking women, helping each other out to get ahead in life. They have a great desire to progress and to help their families. They come form the town of Curuguaty, a place where some areas are still difficult to reach, and it is precisely in one of these areas that these women live.
Clemencia is a member of this group. She engages in breeding and selling farmyard animals such as hens, goats and pigs, first breeding them and then slaughtering or selling them. She says hers is a very demanding job, as she always has to care for her animals all day long. She dreams of succeeding in owing a big farm someday, where to keep on breeding many more animals.
She is requesting a loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of balanced feed for her animals, in order to make sure they do not lack what they need.

More information about this loan

This loan is designed for poor clients living in rural areas with high levels of crime and social conflict. These clients, working primarily in agriculture, are often ineligible for credit from formal financial institutions because of the high-crime area they live in, their lack of adequate collateral (like a land title), and the likelihood of low agricultural production due to bad weather or pests. Fundación Paraguaya is committed to serving these clients with loans and other wraparound services tailored to their needs. It also provides clients working in agriculture with access to discounted training courses at a local agricultural school to teach them how to improve their crop yields.

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.
