This group of excellent hard working women is called “Las Trabajadoras” (Working Women), and was formed on October 27, 2009. They are currently in their 4th program cycle and work at different things, but also work together to build up funds. They mutually support one another to reach their group objectives and those they have within “Fundación Paraguaya.”

Veronica, one of the members, raises, fattens up, and sells chickens. She has a good chicken coop, well suited for raising corral birds and she has a respectable number of chickens, which are well fed. They generate a good income for her because they are well sought after by her customers.

She wants to expand her chicken coop and subsequently wants to increase the number of chickens she raises. To do this, she needs to invest in a large number of chicks, balanced feed, and equipment to supply the birds with feed and water.

This expansion will generate a greater income, given that she is well known in the zone, and the consumption of chicken has increased, due to more accessible prices.

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.
