“Mujeres Luchadoras” (Women Fighters) is the name of this group that consists of 17 women from the city of Luque. They are currently in their 12th loan cycle. This committee was formed as a result of another committee from the same city who urged their neighbors to form their own committee so that they could invest in their businesses and generate good income.

Sra. Mirna sells beverages in order to cover the expenses related to maintaining her household. She has become well-known in the neighborhood since she already has many customers. Mirna says that she has more demand on the weekends, which is why she would like to increase her inventory. She dreams of someday expanding her business so that she will have more space to store her merchandise.

The loan she is requesting will be used to buy beer, whisky, energy drinks, wine, and other beverages for eventual resale.

About Fundación Paraguaya

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.
