The committee “Mujeres Progresando” (Women in Progress) is currently completing its ninth cycle, and its members are all doing very well with their micro-businesses. One of the micro-entrepreneurs is Mrs. Rossana, who has a store where she sells all types of goods. Currently, she wants to invest in her business, but since she has other family expenses, she’s asking for a loan to cover these investments.

She takes care of her house and her business while her husband takes care of the construction and plumbing. Both of them really want to grow the business to earn more profits, and in this way make improvements to their home.

All the members work hard because they want their children to be able to receive a good education and, later, get a good job. This is why they thank the Foundation for the help they receive.

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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
