This group was set up by Mrs. Asteria I. and Mrs. Manuela L., who went to the Paraguaya Foundation Office to find out about the Women Entrepreneurs' Group Program.

The members are very enthusiastic and dedicated; and they take their responsibilities very seriously and with much effort.

Mrs. Asteria sells milk which she gets from her dairy cattle. When she does not have milk to sell or cannot meet demand she buys from a nearby dairy farm at good prices so she can earn a profit.

All of the women in the group are hard workers and struggle to get ahead. They are requesting this loan to invest in their respective businesses, such as Mrs. Asteria's case. She plans to buy work utensils such as liter-size jars and containers.

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.
