The “Santa Librada” committee was formed through the union of various neighbors in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso.

All of the committee members carry out activities of different kinds, but sometimes they carry out joint activities to raise funds for their committee in case of need.

The members are humble people who formed a group in order to get ahead as hard-working women and mothers who want to improve their lives. For this reason, they try to boost their sense of unity with training sessions and frequent meetings.

Herotida is a hard-working woman whose business is making clothing and a variety of embroidered items. She comes from a poor family, and she wants to avoid seeing her children suffer from the lack of necessities as she did, which often made it hard for her to reach the goals she set for herself. Because of this, she has worked with great dedication to gain many steady customers and to be able to provide a secure monetary income for her family.

Today she is requesting the loan from Kiva so that she can buy oil to maintain her sewing machine, and also buy more fabrics to work with.

El comité “Santa Librada” se formó con la unión de varias vecinas de la ciudad de Mariano Roque Alonso.
Todas las integrantes del comité desarrollan actividades diferentes, pero a veces realizan actividades en conjunto para recaudar fondos para su comité en caso de necesidad.
Las integrantes son personas humildes que formaron un grupo para salir adelante como mujeres luchadoras y madres de familia, que desean sobresalir y por ello tratan de fomentar su compañerismo con capacitaciones y encuentros seguidos.
La sra. Herotida es una mujer luchadora que se dedica a la confección de prendas de vestir y bordados varios, ella es de familia pobre y desea que sus hijos no pasen todas las necesidades que ella atravesó y que muchas veces le dificultó alcanzar varias metas que se propuso, por eso Herotida ha trabajado con ahínco, para poder tener muchos clientes fieles y que de alguna manera le brinden un ingreso seguro de dinero para su familia.
Hoy está solicitando el crédito de Kiva para poder comprar aceite para mantener su máquina de coser y comprar más telas con las que pueda trabajar.

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.
