The committee “Mujeres Valientes” (Valiant Women) started as a result of promotional events that were conducted in the neighborhood. All of the members know one another and are neighbors from the same area of San Ignacio. The goal of each member is to work as a team and form a spirit of solidarity so that they can reach the highest level within the program.

Sra. Feliza C. was the first member who was interested in participating in the program. She works as a domestic employee, but wants to work on her own and be independent so that she can stay at home while she works. Feliza will put forth her best effort to see that her committee succeeds and moves forward. The idea she would like to carry out is to establish a “chiperia”, a bakery that produces and sells traditional Paraguayan cheese bread, with her fellow group members.

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.
