Andresa contacted her neighbors and friends in her area to form the committee, Mujeres Valientes (Brave Women). The members have their own businesses but also do things as a group and this is their third loan cycle. The group has 19 members and is known in the neighborhood as being very supportive, united and responsible with each other. They also have a great entrepreneurial and determined spirit.
One of the members is Claudelina who sells all types of clothing. She says that she has been able to help her family and give them what they need to have a life without deprivations because of her business. Her goal is to be able to continue developing as a micro entrepreneur and helping her family. For these reasons she is requesting the loan; she wants to buy more clothing to stock her business and to have more variety to offer her customers.

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.
