The group Oriental was formed by various neighbors in Santaní city. All the members of the committee are from a rural area, where everyone is fighting to improve their living conditions while also helping their community.

The majority of members work in rural jobs, fighting to improve their living conditions. One of them is Bianca. She raises and sells livestock, and in this way helps her family, giving them everything she wasn't able to have.

Bianca seeks this loan to be able to invest in buying feed for her animals, with which she will be able to continue raising her animals.

El llamado Oriental se formó con la unión de varias vecinas de la ciudad de Santaní. Todas las integrantes del comité son de una zona eminentemente rural, donde todas están luchando por mejorar sus condiciones de vida y ayudar también a su comunidad.
En su mayoría todas trabajan en actividades rurales, luchando por mejorar sus condiciones de vida. Una de ellas es la Sra. Blanca, quien se dedica a la cría, venta o faena de animales de corral, donde comenta que por medio de esto ayuda a su familia, dándoles todo lo que ella no pudo tener.
Blanca pide este préstamo para poder invertirlo en comprar balanceados para sus animales, con lo que podrá continuar en la cría de sus animales.

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.
