In the city of Paraguari women meet up who are interested in increasing their capital by setting out to do productive work. From there we coordinate the meetings to inform those who were interested about the program since it is a great loan opportunity.

The committee is named Enterprising Hands since all of the members agree that this opportunity will help them progress. Currently they are in their sixth loan cycle. The group is made up of 12 enterprising women who always do their best to increase their income hence they can offer the best to their families.

All of these individuals are hardworking and have invested their loans in their respective activities. One of the members is Mrs. Maria C. who makes traditional artwork such as blankets and hammocks from cotton for the spring and summer seasons.

She and other members are dedicated to this job since they have many clients that come back to buy and sell in other cities. She is very satisfied with her group since she is able to obtain the loan that helps her buy raw material to make her artwork.

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.
