The Women’s Committee named “Mujeres Emprendedoras” (Women Entrepreneurs) was formed on May 17, 2006, as a result of promotional events conducted by the local representative. Today, twenty women have joined and continue to work with the same level of enthusiasm and effort. They are working in their sixteenth loan cycle together as part of the program.

The group has an excellent payment history and the members treat one another very well. Thanks to their work as a solidarity group, the members have been able to increase their incomes. To this day, they continue to work with the program.

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.
