This group was formed in the San Lorenzon neighborhood in Caaguazu City. Mrs. Zulma Valentina S. became familiar with the program through some promotions in her neighborhood; since there were many interested women on her block, they decided to form the Enterprising Women Group. The group consists of 16 hard-working women who enthusiastically got together to form a group with joint responsibility that depended on teamwork.

One group member, Zulma, began to work selling clothing after becoming part of the group. Currently zulma sells the clothes out of the front room of her home where she displays her merchandise for sale. She has 4 school-aged children and her husband is a contractor for home construction. They are two self-sacrificing individuals who fight to help their family; they are very pleased that their children are doing well in school which is a major goal for Zulma and her husband.

She is grateful to the Foundation for the support provided to her and her fellow group members.

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.
