This committee was founded thanks to Olga R.. Olga is a very kind and active woman who lives in her own small home. She is single but has always known how to get ahead in spite of everything.

Olga is a dressmaker and she requested this loan so that she could expand her business since it would help her a lot. She will buy fabrics, linen, scissors and other work materials that she needs.

This committee is a long-standing group which, in spite of the small problems that they have had, have always known how to get ahead. When Olga started the group, she was just another member and didn't stand out at all. However, she was elected president of the group and has led the group very well along the road of perseverance and prosperity. She found out about Kiva through other groups and was interested. She spoke with Fundación Paraguaya and went house to house in her neighborhood to form a group.

This is a very united group. Together they decided to carry out activities each month in order to add to their petty cash. Each member owns her own small business.

The women live in Villa Bonita neighborhood, in the city of Villa Elisa. Their goals are to always work in order to get ahead with their group, their small businesses and also their families.

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.
