El comité denominado “Mujeres Emprendedoras” de la ciudad de Limpio. Este comité se formo con la ayuda de una señora quien asistió a reuniones de conformación de un comité en la ciudad de Limpio. Se realizaron cuatro reuniones previas al crédito en donde las interesadas se interiorizaron más a cerca del programa Comité de mujeres emprendedoras. En las reuniones compartimos muchas experiencias de las señoras con sus negocios. Al comenzar las reuniones asistieron 17 señoras de las cuales 16 estuvieron de acuerdo con los compromisos del comité. Actualmente se encuentran en el 9º ciclo del programa, la línea de crédito que manejan es de a partir de 100.000 Guaraníes hasta 500.000 guaraníes por cada integrante, según lo que le corresponde de acuerdo con el ciclo en el que se encuentran, actualmente son 17 integrantes.

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.
