This group composed of women from the city of Itá is called “Las Perlas” (The Pearls). It formed thanks to one of the members who gathered friends and neighbors from the neighborhood together to form the group. Las Perlas has worked with the Fundación since 2008 and stands out for its team work and solidarity.

Elena is one of these women. She tells us that she’s a dressmaker. She’s been doing this for quite some time so she has a good clientele already. She works hard every day to earn income to give her family everything they need for a good life.

She is asking for Kiva help to buy fabric, thread, glue and other supplies to make clothes in her workshop.

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.
