Vilma set up this committee. She invited friends from her neighborhood to join the 'Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras' (Commitee of Entrepreneurial Women) program and organized the group as they all share the same dream of getting their families ahead in life. They all also want to be able to feel of use to society and their families.

Vilma has a sewing business. She has been married to Francisco, who works as a driver on a transport route, for 20 years. They have three children who are all studying: one is in elementary school, one is in high school and one is at university. Vilma has been running a sewing business in her neighborhood for a long time. As a result, she has a large customer base. Her dream is to be able to open a sewing workshop in her home and equip it with everything she needs to continue to carry out her work.

Vilma is requesting this loan to set up a small workshop in her home which she will equip with the supplies that she needs. She and her fellow committee members have all their hopes placed in this loan.

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.
