Señora Maria started off this committee by organizing and inviting her friends to become a part of the Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras [Committee of Enterprising Women] program. It was from there that the group Virgen del Rosario came about. The 19 women who make up the group are very hardworking and enterprising and they are eager to fight to get ahead in life.

Señora Maria has a fast food counter where she sells food, drinks, candy and other items. She has a partner of 18 years and they have three children, two minors and one adult. Her goal is to continue expanding her business, thus providing her family with a better way of life i.e., food, a home and education.

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.
