The “Mujeres Unidas” was formed by several women who were neighbors in the city of Santaní. Each of them has a different activity, but they help each other to be able to improve their and their family's lives. They want to learn and grow.

Ceferina is part of this group. She sells fruits and vegetables. She has a cart and every day goes out very early to go through the city. She says that she is content with her work since it is honest and with it she gives her family what they need. She is asking for this loan to buy fruits and vegetables to sell, since this way she will be well stocked and supplied to keep offering a variety to her customers.

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.
