The "Mujeres Unidas" ["United Women"] committee was born as a result of the management and help of a group of women who work in the same neighborhood. They took this name because the group members are women who are highly united in striving for their families, and who want to be able to improve their income while growing as people.

Señora Dolores is a very enterprising woman and one who is capable of working in union with a large group such as this one. She works selling all kinds of clothing, and also lingerie. She says that she has a very good clientele as she also has a good variety of products for sale, and this is what attracts her customers.

She is requesting the loan to purchase clothing, such as T-shirts, jeans, shorts and lingerie, so as to be able to stock up her business and in this way be able to continue providing variety to her customers.

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.
