The women's committee "Santa Librada" started working with the Fundación Paraguaya through the promotion of one of its members who had been part of another committee in the area that didn't get renewed. She decided to look for partners and after a lot of communication and a visit from the adviser she was able to form a group of 12 women from her zone. The women are very united and responsible and are very willing to work hard to get ahead, both within the group and with regards to their families. They mentioned that they are very happy working in a team, with a lot of effort and care, under the program Comite de Mujeres.

Victoriana is one of the members of the group. She sells cheese and milk and says she has a very good clientele because she always has good products. Thanks to her work she has made progress and been able to help her family. Her goal is to be able to keep growing her business and therefore keep helping her family.

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.
