The Madres Trabajadoras (Working Mothers) Group has been around for almost three years, working in conjunction with Fundación Paraguaya. Most of its members are already involved in productive activities. During this loan cycle, 4 new members have joined, and they have been learning the ropes about business since they, too, want to develop some sort of business to help out their families. The members sell products like fruits and vegetables, and homemade food like meat, chicken, or ham and cheese empanadas.

They hope for a better future for their children, which is why they double their efforts to provide them with the tools they need for their development and upbringing.

Ms. Blanca P. is one of the group members who sells breakfast and lunch. With her family's help, she prepares meals to sell to other families every day. The menu changes daily, and some dishes include: rice or noodle stew, steak, tortillas, empanadas, breaded cutlets of meat, soups, and other meals.

She is requesting this loan in order to purchase the ingredients she needs to prepare her dishes.

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.
