The "Mujeres Trabajando Juntas" (Women Working Together) village bank has been in existence for two years and works with the Fundación Paraguaya. Most of its members are already working productively, but two of its members are women who have yet to begin activities. The activities they carry out include the sale of fruits and vegetables, sale of home-made foods such as meat, chicken and ham empanadas (savory pastries); the sale of various goods like noodles, sugar, flour, oil, and ham; and articles such as clothing, home remedies and others. They dream of a better future for their children, and for this reason work twice as hard to provide them with the things they need for their development and education.

One example is that of Doña Francisca, a seller of medicinal herbs who goes to the market early in the morning to buy her merchandise and hurries back to sell it among the shops and households in different neighborhoods in the city of Asunción. She is much loved by her clients, and the same ones always buy her products, says Doña Francisca, who in turn thanks the Fundación Paraguaya for supporting her in her work which maintains her family of ten.

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.
