One of the stories worth highlighting is that of Del Rosaria, who is 54, and has been selling hammocks and other crafts for several years now. Through this work she is able to support her family and give them everything they need, so that they don't have to experience any privations such as those she had to experience.

She is applying for this loan in order to buy thread, needles, and other supplies so that she can continue making her hammocks and other crafts. She is grateful for the help that she and her friends are receiving, as it will allow each of them to grow in their respective businesses.

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.
