The Women’s Committee named “San Roque” was formed on October 29, 2008. Eva, the current Director General, sells animals for a living. Thanks to her efforts, she learned about the Committee of Women Entrepreneurs Program after visiting Fundación Paraguaya. Once she was advised about the program requirements, Eva was able to gather eighteen women who enjoy working. They are in their sixth loan cycle working together in the program.

The group is known for working together and cooperating with one another. All of them participate in fundraising activities so that they can help one another reach their common goals and those of Fundación Paraguaya.

Sra. Eva raises chickens, cows, and pigs and later sells them to small business owners who want these animals for their meat. In addition, she sells other products such as milk from her cows, eggs from her chickens, and lard from her pigs.

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.
