The “Mujeres Emprendedoras con Esperanza” (Hopeful Enterprising Women) committee was established over three years ago when the cleaning lady of the Fundación’s Luque office invited her neighbors to form a group in order to have the possibility of increasing their merchandise and expanding their work.

Currently, the group is in Fundación Paraguaya’s Enterprising Women Committee Program’s 10th cycle with 17 members who are involved in a variety of activities.

Mrs. Norma A. sells clothes. She used the money to buy clothes like: t-shirts, shirts, pants and jackets to resell.

She is an itinerant merchant that travels to various neighborhoods daily to set up her stand and display her merchandise; this is how she offers her clothes for sale. Norma tells us that this is very demanding work but it’s the opportunity she has to help her family.

She very much would like to have a locale to sell her merchandise because the way she currently works is very unstable.

El comité Mujeres Emprendedoras con Esperanza del barrio San Carlos, se formo hace mas tres años, gracias a que la encargada de limpieza de la oficina de la ciudad de Luque de la Fundación invito a sus vecinas a formar un grupo para que de esa forma tengan la posibilidad de incrementar sus mercaderías para ir creciendo laboralmente.
Actualmente el grupo se encuentra en el décimo quinto ciclo del programa Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras de la Fundación Paraguaya y está conformado por 17 integrantes las cuales invierten en distintas actividades.

La señora Norma A. se dedica a la venta de ropas e invirtió el dinero en la compra de ropas varias como remeras, camisas. Pantalones, camperas, para la venta de los mismos.
Ella vende sus mercaderías en forma ambulante por la calle, todos los días viaja en distintas zonas para colocar su puesto y exponer sus mercaderías y de esa forma ofrece sus prendas de vestir.
Es una actividad muy sacrificada pero es la oportunidad que ella tiene para ayudar a su familia comenta la señora Norma.
Ella desea mucho contar con un local en un lugar para vender sus mercaderías ya de la forma como trabaja actualmente es muy inestables.

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.
