The 'Comité Mujeres Activas' (Committee of Active Women) is an excellent committee which was established on 20th April 2010. It has 17 female members.

This group was formed when Mrs Miguela F., who was previously part of another group, approached the advisor in a loan renewal meeting in her district, to find out about the possibility of regrouping in the 'Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras' (Committee of Enterprising Women) program.

The advisor's response was positive and Miguela was very enthusiastic and very keen to be able to work within the program. Her group now finds itself working very happily on its third loan cycle in the 'Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras' program.

All the members of the group work in different business activities such as buying fruits and vegetables, buying ingredients to prepare food, buying notions, buying merchandise for a grocery store (sugar, rice, yerba, bakery products, dairy products, meat, etc.) and buying clothes to sell.

This is a very active group. All its members show team spirit and support each other. They attend the weekly meetings and carry out activities to collect funds for the common good of the group.

One of the group's members is Miguela F. who sells food which she makes herself. She sells her food from her home and makes a good income. She comments that this activity makes her good profits. She is requesting this loan to buy ingredients to make the food which she prepares, especially meat as the price of meat is very high right now.

Este grupo se formó gracias a que la Sra. Miguela F., quien ya formó parte anteriormente de otro grupo junto con otras compañeras se acercó a la asesora en una reunión de renovación de crédito que la misma tenía en la zona para averiguar acerca de la posibilidad de retomar nuevamente el de Programa de Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras.
En vistas de que la respuesta de la asesora fue positiva, la misma quedó muy entusiasmada y muy ansiosa de poder trabajar con este programa y ahora ya se encuentran trabajando muy contentas en el 3er. ciclo del Programa de Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras.
Todas se dedican a diferentes actividades tales como: compra de frutas y verduras, compra ingredientes para la preparación de alimentos, compra de mercerías, compra de mercaderías para la despensa (azúcar, arroz, yerba, panificados, lácteos, carnes, etc.), compra de ropa para la venta.

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.

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.
