This group from Santo Domingo emerged through another committee in the same neighborhood. All of the women carry out productive activities by selling merchandise at the international bridge (oil, flour, sugar, soap, noodles, and other food products). They also sell clothing and lingerie. One woman has a business of raising chickens, and others have their own businesses in their home (a grocery store and a kiosk). The amount that each woman will receive varies from 300,000 to 500,000 guaranis ($75-100). All of the women will purchase merchandise for the activities they presently carry out.

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.
