The group of women known as Mujeres Progresistas was formed on July 20, 2009 thanks to the fact that the General Director, Mrs. Benigna A., who works selling linens and had participated in the Enterprising Women Group (Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras) program and knew how the program worked, contacted the advisor in order to go back to working with the Fundación Paraguaya. She was able to bring 21 women together that are now comfortably working together as a supportive team during the first cycle of the program that is now beginning.
The average amount borrowed on credit of each member is 300Gs. which goes toward their endeavors such as the sale of beverages, garlic, cleaning products, clothing (notions), cassava, fabrics, pillows, fruits and vegetables, food, etc.

All these women work toward paying back the money through their sales, working together to reach the common objectives that all the women of the Fundación Paraguaya share.

They all actively participate in weekly meetings and have formed an impeccable collective effort.

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.
