This excellent group of businesswomen was formed in the town of Itá. The current Chairperson Sra. Lourdes contacted the advisor in a weekly meeting that she was holding in the area to tell her about the kind of work that the Committee of Women Entrepreneurs were doing. Once the program was assessed, she managed to get together twenty women who work well together and are already in their sixth loan cycle. They are committed and supportive of each other and can be described as diligent and hardworking.

Sra. Lourdes has been selling cosmetics for some time so she has a regular clientele. Through her hard work she has managed to get ahead and provide a decent life for her family. She is considered to be a very hardworking woman who is not afraid of work.

Lourdes is seeking a loan to buy more cosmetics so she can increase her stock.

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.
