The committee named “Mujeres Unidas” (United Women) is in its fifth loan cycle with 18 members who engage in productive business activities. They work closely together in various events so that they can make their loan payments and save enough money to meet any need.

Sra. Felipa is one of the committee members who earns her living by making and selling cleaning products. Every week she receives orders, so she must buy the materials needed to prepare cleaning products such as detergents, laundry soaps, and bath soaps. This business helps her and her husband support their family. She is requesting a loan to buy the materials needed to make cleaning products and plastic containers for better presentation and distribution of her products.

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.
