Junta De Saneamiento Caaguazu Group
In this Group: Jorge, Serapio
The Caaguazu Sanitation Board is located in the city of Ñemby, which is adjacent to the city of Villa Elisa. In 1993, the Board was established in order to address the need for accessing safe drinking water. The residents of this neighborhood held fundraising activities to acquire the money needed to dig a well and install plumbing, functions that fall under the authority of the Board.

An artesian well and reservoir was built to support 180 users at the beginning. There are currently 3,343 users, four wells, four reservoirs, an elevated tank that holds 50,000 liters, and a well-organized executive committee. Thanks to these efforts, many families have vital access to water.

The loan being requested from Fundación Paraguaya will be used to drill another well in order to satisfy the demand for water this summer for all users. During this season, the demand for water is double than usual. This loan will also meet the demand for future connections. In the photo are Jorge and Serapio, who are in charge of this water source and managing this project, and who are co-signers on the loan.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan will help fund a new product Fundación Paraguaya has launched called "Ikatu Agua" that will enable people in remote communities to dig wells, build pipelines and install water meters to expand access to clean drinking water. Loans like these are given to sanitation boards, which represent their entire communities. These groups contract builders and oversee construction of water distribution systems, while collecting repayments from impacted community members. These repayments are pooled and returned to Kiva to be credited to lenders.

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.
