The main contact at the beginning of this group was Ms. Rocio Carolina L., who invited and organized her friends to come together to join the "Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras" ["Enterprising Women's Program"].

Ms. Felicita E. de Olmedo is one of the members and she is very satisfied with her work. Every day, she sells a large quantity of empanadas [typical stuffed bread pastries] and natural juices. She says that this has helped her a lot, and that she feels fully realized as a woman now that she can help her family significantly with the profits she earns from selling foods.

She is requesting this loan to buy meat, as the current price is rather high, so she wants to take advantage of this loan to buy in a larger quantity.

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.
