This group was formed in the Empalado Ari de Caaguazú neighborhood. Mrs. Catalina R. found out about the program through her neighbor who is the president of another group. Because there were many interested people in the area, they decided to participate in the Group of Enterprising Women program. They are 16 hard-working women, who want to continue progressing. With a lot of enthusiasm, they meet with the goal of forming a solidary group, in which they have joint responsibility for the loan and work as a team. They work independently in jobs such as selling clothes, shoes, food, tailoring, running stores, etc. They will receive loans of different amounts, like 1,000,000 gs, others for 800,000 gs, and others for 700,000 gs, 500,000 gs, and 300,000 gs. They will invest their loans to buy sugar, meat, flour, eggs, noodles, sweets, jeans, t-shirts, skirts, shirts, lingerie, cheese, and hens. They want personal progress with this loan offered by the Fundación Paraguaya.

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.
