The Kuña Guapa group was formed in a community of the city of Santaní, where the members are women who do primarily rural activities. They live in a very remote area with poor access, especially during the rainy season, and they want to improve it. All of the women raise and sell animals such as hens, sheep, pigs and other animals. They raise them and then sell them, and in this way help their families. Angela is one of the women in the group, who is making progress with much sacrifice and effort. Today she is requesting a loan to purchase feed for her animals so that she can continue working and fighting to help her family.

El comité Kuña Guapa se formó en la comunidad de la ciudad de Santaní, donde las integrantes son mujeres que hacen actividades eminentemente rurales. Ellas viven en un lugar bastante lejano, y con poco acceso, más en tiempo de lluvia, y quieren poder mejorarlo.
Todas se dedican a la cría y venta de animales de corral, como ser gallinas, ovejas, cerdos y demás que crían y luego venden, y de esa forma ayudan a sus familias. Angela es una de ellas, quien con mucho esfuerzo y sacrificio está saliendo adelante.
Hoy ella pide de este crédito para poder invertirlo en la compra de balanceados para sus animales y así seguir con su trabajo y luchar por ayudar a su familia.

Additional Information

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.
