The “San Cayetano II” committee was formed with the union of several female neighbors from the city of Santaní, a quite rural area that is still growing, and lacks many things, such as security and access to means of communicating.

Maria is one of the members of this group, who makes a living raising, selling and slaughtering farm animals that she raises herself. She states that she works every day beginning in the early hours, since she is always has to be attentive to her animals so that they are well, and that way they have quality meat. She is requesting this loan in order to be able to invest it in the purchase of animal feed, so she can continue selling her animals like she has been doing.

El comité “San Cayetano II” se formó con la unión de varias vecinas de la ciudad de Santaní, una zona bastante rural que aún se encuentra en crecimiento, y carente de muchas cuestiones, como seguridad y acceso a medios de comunicación.
Maria es una de las integrantes de este grupo, quien se dedica a la cría, venta o faena de animales de corral que ella misma cría. Comenta que trabaja todos los días desde muy tempranas horas ya que siempre está pendiente de sus animales para que estén bien y de esa forma tener carne de calidad.
Ella pide este préstamo para poder invertirlo en la compra de balanceados para sus animales, y de esa forma seguir con la venta de sus animales como lo viene haciendo.

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.
