"Emanuel" is the excellent women's group from the city of Itá that formed thanks to getting in contact with the advisor on one of her visits to the area. The group has 19 women who find themselves on their fourth loan cycle, working comfortably together and supporting each other within the program.

Nancy, a member of this group, earns her living sewing. She has been a dressmaker for a while, and thanks to her hard work, she is making progress. She is an excellent person who, despite certain obstacles, is getting ahead. Her goal is to be able to have a large sewing workshop and to be able to provide jobs to other people in her neighborhood, because she knows that this is a difficult time.

She is requesting this loan for the purchase of fabric, thread, elastic, buttons, zippers, and more, so that she can use them in her workshop and continue working.

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.
