The committee "Las Divinas," thanks to its effort and collective support, is in its fifteenth loan cycles of the Enterprising Women Program of Fundación Paraguaya. It has 18 members from the city of Asunción, where they all make sacrifices every day to give their families a different future from the one that befell the members themselves, so they could be men and women who are useful to society.

Ezequiela is the group's chair and comments that, thanks to her work and her sacrifice, she has been able to help her family and give them a worthy life. She is a dressmaker and comments that she began with a small dressmaking workshop which she has, with much effort, been gradually expanding. Today it is a very successful microenterprise.

She is seeking the loan for the purchase of cloth, thread, needles, glue and other supplies necessary for her to continue working. Ezequiela and her group are grateful for the help they receive from Fundación Paraguaya and from Kiva.

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.
