The communal bank "Primavera" is in its first loan cycle. The members are hard-working women who help each other to get ahead. They are taking the poverty elimination survey and some women are already above the poverty line. But others are still below it.

One of the members is Eva, who showed a medium level income on the last survey. Through her efforts and continued work, and by using the applications of vital behavior for a successful woman, she is improving her situation. She is a seamstress and says that thanks to her efforts and hard work she has formed a good customer base. Her goal is to have a large shop so she can also help other people.

She is requesting a loan to buy fabric, thread, elastic and other supplies so she can continue investing in her busines and improve her business plan.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of the innovative “Poverty Stoplight” program developed by Fundación Paraguaya for women living in poverty. A “stoplight” measurement tool is used to help borrowers self-identify the type of poverty that affects them most (lack of income, dearth of financial opportunities, poor living conditions etc.). Borrowers rate 50 areas of their life as green (not poor), yellow (poor) or red (extremely poor). Together with their loan officer, they come up with a plan to resolve yellow and red indicators. Through this program, Fundación Paraguaya hopes to lift 9,000 women and their families out of poverty by 2017.

To learn more about this unique approach to eliminating poverty, you can read this article on Fundación Paraguaya’s website.

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.
