The Madre Central committee has passed the fourth cycle. All of the women in the group earn a living raising animals, such as chicken and pigs. They also sell eggs and cheese.

They are in an area fairly far from the city, and although it is growing, their incomes are from completely rural activities, but self-sacrificing.

Gloria also earns her living raising animals, and she sells or slaughters them. She says it is very self-sacrificing work taking care of animals, but it looks like an option for being able to help her family. She stands out in the group for being a very enthusiastic person with a desire to get ahead.

She is asking for this loan to invest in buying balanced feed for her animals, to be able to continue taking care of them and also continue fighting for her family.

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.
