They have stood out in their community and all their neighbors support their activities be they raffles, sports events or children’s activities; they want to continue working together to continue to grow as a group and become stronger in the committee.

Besides working as a group, each member has her own independent commercial activity designed to obtain improved income for their families.

Many of the women already have their own businesses and others are about to open theirs. Such is the case of Herminia who works as a domestic employee in a private home and plans now to set up a food vending stand outside her home to become independent and be able to work at home with her children.

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.
