This group is made of members from two previous groups no longer active which were headed by Rosa Maria B. and Teodora G.. .

The current group is in its eighth loan cycle. We can tell you about Teodora G.: 40 years old with five children who lives with her older sister from which she goes to sell her food in the hot area of Viñas Cue, near her neighbourhood. In the afternoons she sells sweets with her young son Carlos, such as home-made pies made by Teodora.

She is a long-suffering woman who has a hard life: at 4:00 A.M. she goes to the wholesale food market to make her purchases with her 12-year-old son and returns home to prepare empanadas [meat patties], tortillas, croquettes for breakfast for some construction workers whom she prepares breakfast for.

She has a small little house made of unstable materials such as bits of wood and plywood. In this way she helps her partner with the household expenses and the expenses for her children.

In one of her interviews and at weekly meetings she has told us: "I am grateful to Fundacion Paraguaya for their help for myself and my family as well as my community".

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.
