The “Working Mothers” Committee was formed by uniting various neighbors in the Santa Librada barrio of the city of Villa Elisa. All committee members carry out activities independently, as are their sales.

The members make up a very united group, capable of acting together. Since the majority are dedicated to sales, they are actually colleagues. All committee members are mothers who are dedicated to their activities for the purpose of strengthening the household economy and developing their enterprises in a sustainable manner.

One example is Mrs. Ramona B. who sells colothes. She travels to Market 4 in the city of Asunción to buy merchandise and resell it in her barrio in the City of Villa Elisa. To do this, she visits customers in different zones and, actually, she can count on many customers who pay weekly or monthly for her merchandise.

Here are their activities:
1 Ramona B. Clothing sales 2 Daniela A. Sells meals
3 Evelyn M. Provisions store 4 Arninda B. Sells fruit
5 Olga A. Lottery sales 6 Aida S. Sells drinks
7 Leonora V. Café 8 Blanca Nuñez Provisions store

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.
