Mrs. Librada of Barrio Buena Vista, Ciudad del Este initiated this Committee. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form the committee in her community. The committee is called “Mujeres Comprometidas” (Committed Women) and is in its 5th loan cycle with 15 members. The group is well known in its neighborhood for being united, responsible among themselves, and to have solidarity. They carry out community tasks and activities for the committee and have savings of 5,253,868 in local currency.

Each of the members will receive a portion of the loan and will use it in their own economic activity. For example, Mrs. Blanca is dedicated to selling meals. She rents a small space in the city market and travels there daily with all the necessary ingredients to make meals. She then sells her meals to the people who work there as well as to those who visit the market. She enjoys good sales and earnings with much effort, Blanca comments.

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.
