The “Mujeres Unidas” (United Women) committee was formed when several neighbors from the city of Mariano Roque Alonso came together. The members form a much unified group capable of carrying out activities together that strengthen their companionship.

Nancy is one of the group members. She is a Seamstress and makes jewel cases, sheets, crochets; in reality, all sorts of sewn items. She is a very creative woman and her customers are quite impressed with her work.

She has four children and her husband is a Security Guard so they help each other meet household expenses.

She is very satisfied with her work and with the training the group gets. Nancy is asking for the loan to buy more materials she needs for her sewing, especially fabric and thread.

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.
