“El Comité Las Emprendedoras II” (Committe of Entrepreneurial Women II) is a group of 20 excellent women from the city of Itagua. The group was formed on May 31, 2010.

This group formed, because Ms. Marcelina V. went to a loan renewal meeting in her neighborhood to learn more about the “Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras” (Committee of Entrepreneurial Women) and she got very excited and anxious to work with this program. Now the group is in its second cycle of the program.

Marcelina has a food stand where she sells fast food and lunches. She also sells carbonated drinks, soft drinks, juices, etc. It’s in a good location and she has steady and occasional customers.

Because of the demand for her products, and thanks to their quality, healthiness, and good customer service, she wants to lower her costs by buying ingredients in quantity, such as beef, poultry, pork, vegetables, flour, noodles, etc. This will help increase her profits. She also wants to expand the variety of drinks that she offers.

This way she can increase her income and continue to grow within the food industry.

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.
