The communal bank "Lambaré Women United" is currently in its second cycle of the Fundacion Paraguaya's Women Entrepreneurs program. The group consists of 14 members from the area of Asunción. The members always try their best to help their families and give them what they need every day.

Lilian is part of the group and says that she has a recycling business, recycling cartons, plastic, iron and other items. She walks the streets looking for plastic and cardboard, a job which she describes as extremely demanding. She is very proud of what she does, since it is a worthy job and above all very honest.

Lilian is requesting a loan to purchase plastics, which she will resell at a profit margin, which will help her to continue working and help her family. She does not want her family to be in any kind of need, which is why she always tries her hardest.

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.
