The committee named “Sagrada Familia” (Sacred Family) is a group that has been working for several loan cycles. This committee consists of 15 women, all of whom have a common goal of helping their families improve their living situations.

One of the members is Sra. Nelida, who is enterprising and hardworking. She and her husband strive each day to get ahead. Her work consists of taking care of her house and raising animals, such as chickens and pigs. She says that her work has been a great help to her family since whatever she produces is sold at the fairs or at the market.

Nelida is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of balanced feed for her animals. This will enable her to continue working and striving to improve in the same manner she is currently doing now.

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.
