A group of women who are familiar with the program offered by Fundación Paraguaya and work together to achieve their goal meet in Fracción Santo Domingo neighborhood, in the town of Yaguarón, 3km from the city of Paraguarí.

The committee is called 'Mujeres Unidas' (United Women) because it is made up of hard-working women who have always worked together to carry out all their activities, remaining united at all times.

En la zona denominada Fracción Santo Domingo, ciudad de Yaguarón a 3 Km. de la ciudad de Paraguarí, se reune un grupo de mujeres quienes se interiorizan sobre el programa ofrecido por la Fundación Paraguaya y trabajan todas juntas por su objetivo.
El comité lleva por nombre Mujeres Unidas, por estar integrada por luchadoras mujeres que siempre han trabajado en conjunto para realizar todas sus actividades, manteniendose juntas en todo momento. Trabajan por sis familias y la comunidad en que viven, por lo cual solicitan el crédito con el fin de invertirlo en la compra de ropas de todo tipo destinadas especialmente a los niños, jóvenes y adultos que las necesitan.
Por ejemplo, la señora Cinthia D. se dedica a la venta de ropas en su ciudad, con ello mantiene a su familia y sus hijos dignamente y coopera con las demás integrantes del comité.
Ella ha progresado mucho en su grupo y con su familia, por eso desea poder aumentar sus ingresos adquiriendo mayor cantidad de ropas que puedan ser vendidas a precios más accesibles y así obtener mayores ingresos económicos.

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.
