The Ñanduti group is in its 3rd cycle of the women's committee programme. Five of them live below the poverty line, i.e. with very low incomes. It is possible to determine this from the poverty elimination survey which they are carrying out.

One of the members is Teresa, who was found to have a poverty level within level one in the latest survey, i.e. with very low income. However, she knows that by effort and working continually and by showing the essential characteristics of a successful woman, she will improve her poverty situation. Moreover, by selling clothing she is trying to improve her own and her family's life.

Teresa is asking for this loan to buy clothing such as knit tops, shorts, trousers, dresses and sleeveless tops etc. which will help her to set up her business plan. This will help her to improve her income.

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.

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.

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.
