The “Las Marías” women’s committee was formed on June 10, 2008 thanks to the group’s President, Mrs. Mary B., who had participated previously in another group and decided to start her own. She herself contacted the adviser and managed to get 17 women together who are now comfortably working in their 8th cycle in a unified and mutually supportive way.

Mary sells milk. She has two little cows with which she tries to support her humble family. This is why she needs a loan to buy another cow to increase income and move her family out of poverty.

All of them undertake activities to generate income; they help each other mutually to reach common objectives. They participate actively in weekly meetings and they have an impeccable mutually supportive work.

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.
