The members of this committee have a variety of activities among which the following can be highlighted: clothing sales and food (turnovers, tortillas, croquettes, grilled meats, etc.) sales. Most of the members are mothers who sacrifice daily to provide their homes with needed support.

The committee is in its second cycle. They have distinguished themselves with their sense of responsibility toward the group activities and meetings and for the wish each has to progress as well as in their responsibility towards repayments. They wish that their children do not go through the same employment and educational limitations they suffered so they try doubly hard to provide their children with opportunities for progress.

One of the members is Emilce who sells home use articles. Although it doesn’t produce very high profits it is a help to provide food for her family.

This is an important business for her, therefore, and she wants to buy merchandise to restock it. She wants such things as: noodles, sugar, rice, beverages and others.

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.

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.
