The committe named, "Rosa Mistica" (Mystic Rose), in honor of the virgen Mary who is the patron saint of the group. All of the members are women who have had to give up a lot but wish to get ahead alongside their families and have a better quality of life that can allow them to live with dignity. Guillermina is one of the most active members of the group; she sells fruits at a rented location because she has been unable to obtain her own spot.
She dedicates herself to this business since it has helped her economically support her family. Fruit is a product of daily consumption which is why her customer base is increasing. Her current challenge is that she has not been able to fulfill her client's demand which is why she is requesting the loan, in order to purchase fruit in greater quantities and sell them to the customers she supplies.

El comite tiene por nombre "Rosa Mistica" en honor a la virgen Maria, quien es la santa patrona de este grupo.
Todas las integrantes son mujeres muy sacrificadas que desean prosperar cada día junto con sus familias, y asi poder obtener una mejor calidad de vida que les ayude a vivir dignamente.
La sra. Guillermina es una de las integrantes más activas del comité, ella se dedica a la venta de frutas en un puesto que posee de manera alquilada, porque no puede conseguir su propio local.
Se dedica a este tipo de comercio pues le ha ayudado bastante en el sostenimiento economico de su familia y la fruta es un producto de consumo diario, por eso sus clientes van aumentando en cantidad.
El desafío que tiene ultimamente es que no puede abastecer la demanda de sus clientes, por eso solicita el credito, para poder comprar frutas a mayores escalas cuantitativas y poder venderlos a la clientela que suministra.

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.

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.
