The “Las Triunfadoras” ("The Winners") Group is in its sixth cycle of the Women's Group Program in the city of Roque Alonso. Each of the members works in a different activity, but they get together regularly to complete various activities as a group.

One of the group's members is Ms. Nancy, who works as a confectioner. She makes cakes for children's parties, quinceañeras, weddings, and other events. Nancy studied for a good amount of time in order to become a pastry baker. She works according to the orders she receives from her customers, with the weekends much busier than other days. She can receive 3 or 4 cake orders for a weekend.

She is requesting this loan to purchase an electric mixer, as it would be very useful in her work. She would also like to buy certain ingredients for her cakes, such as special flours, sugar, food coloring, and other ingredients.

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.
