In the Beni Loma neighborhood of the city of Carapegua, 15 miles from the central offices of Carapegua, some low-income women found out about the Comité de Mujeres Emprendoras program, and decided to meet to receive information about this program. They were looking for a little support in the form of loans, to develop a source of income and in this way improve their quality of life.

They have already obtained loans, and thanks to this program they are able to invest in the purchase of thread and cloth and thus ensure systematic growth.

One of the members is Felicia, who has a clothing workshop. Her business is in a good location, and her customers are very satisfied with the products that are made in her workshop.

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.
