The 'Mujeres Dinámicas' (Dynamic Women) committee is in its second loan cycle as part of Fundación Paraguaya's Women's Committee Program. The group has 12 members.

One of the committee's members, who we will talk about here, is Luisa Arhens. She owns a small street stall where she sells fruit in her community. She goes to the market to buy her fruit which she then sells. It is cheaper here than in other places. She also sells natural juices. She has regular customers and she uses her profits to help her husband. She joined the committee so that she could expand her small business. She is requesting her loan to buy fruit such as apples, oranges, melons, watermelons, pineapples, etc.

All of the members of this committee have a great desire to improve themselves.

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.
