The Mujeres Anfitrionas group started by bringing together a collection of working women from the same place. This group is from the city of San Lorenzo, where each one of the women works independently but also help each other make headway. Carmen, one of the members, is a seamstress. She says her business is growing thanks to the help she is receiving from her fellow members and Kiva partner Fundacion Paraguaya. Her goal is to be able to have a big sewing workshop and to be able to help her fellow members with their jobs. She is requesting the loan to purchase fabrics, threads, buttons and other sewing supplies so she can keep working and growing her business.

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.
