The participants of this committee work in different activities, and all of the women are heads of their households, where they are in charge of supporting the family and putting food on the table every day.

This committee is now in its second cycle with the Fundación Paraguaya, which emphasizes the sense of responsibility and the desire to progress that each participant has. Additionally, they are responsible in their payments. Their main desire is that their children do not have the same educational and labor limitations that they had. For this reason the women of this committee work twice as hard to be able to bring progress and opportunities to their children.

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.
