This committee is from Comandante P.. They are low-income women who entered the Enterprising Women Committee to unite and form a group.

These women are active. Most are in sales of home use items, handicrafts, food and other activities.

They need this loan to invest in their various enterprises in order to attain sustainable growth that will help them grow as a group and as individuals.

Mrs. Ramona V. is asking for the loan to buy ingredients she uses to prepare the meals she prepares.

She is from a very humble, but very tenacious, family. Each family member is engaged in a different activity to contribute to the household expenses.
Thus, Ramona prepares various types of food items like turnovers, Paraguayan soup and pastries that her children take out to sell.

She tells us that this work is very demanding and takes up a lot of her and her children’s time but to date has been the activity that produces income for her family.

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.
