In the city of Paraguarí, a group of women entrepreneurs gathered together with the idea to access a loan by forming a committee. At this meeting, they clarified all the details about the program and willingly agreed to work because they wanted to seize the opportunity to receive training that would help them improve their businesses. In addition, they could increase their operating capital so that they could earn more income.

The committee is named “Tembiaporä”, which is now in its eighth loan cycle with an excellent rating. Within this group are 16 determined women who try every possible way to improve the living standards of their families. All of the members are enterprising women who will invest their loans in their respective businesses.

Sra. Mariza is a member who buys fruits and vegetables (apples, oranges, pineapples, onions, tomatoes, and peppers) on credit and then sells them.

About Fundación Paraguaya

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.
