Fifteen women from the city of Villa Elisa came together with the hope of working together and helping their families thanks to this joint effort. They are people with a great desire to get ahead, and they demonstrate it in their work and in the meetings they hold each week, showing that they have a great interest in strengthening themselves and making progress.

Sonia has a beauty salon, and she reports that she has a very good customer base, since she is very friendly with all her customers, and this helps always to keep them very happy with the service she provides. Thanks to her work and dedication, she has been able to get ahead and help her family, and at the same time contribute to covering the costs that come up day by day. Her dream is to have a large shop, which would allow her to provide work to other people who need it.

She is requesting the loan to buy shampoos, rinses, sprays and other products, which will allow her to stock up, continue working and keep her business well supplied.

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.
