This Committee came together thanks to Eladia who had stopped by the Fundación Paraguaya office to get detailed information about the program of the Enterprising Women’s Committee. She then invited her friends and acquaintances in the neighborhood who decided to add themselves to the group effort to get ahead thus improving their way of life.

They are 16 humble, hard working women who must earn their daily sustenance. They work independently at their tasks. Some sell clothes, others sell food or have grocery stores, general stores or community farms; they sell their own products. They sell cleaning supplies, notions, charcoal, manioc, etc.

Teresa, hoping to get ahead with her family, is asking for this loan that she hopes will help her have her own costume jewelry business. She will make the items herself. She will buy acrylics, seed pearls, pincers, chains, string, etc.

La misma invitó a sus amigas y compañeras del Barrio y decidieron sumarse al trabajo grupal para salir adelante y así mejorar su estilo de vida.
Son 16 (Díez y Seis) mujeres trabajadoras y humildes que deben ganarse el sustento todos los días. Ellas son independientes en sus labores como vendedoras de ropas, venta de comidas, tienen despensa, almacén, huertas comunitarias y comercializan sus propios productos.

La Sra. Teresa, con el deseo de superarse por su familia, solicita este crédito con el cual espera tener su propio de negocio de bijouterie, realizando ella misma los objetos con la compra de acrílicos, perlitas, alocates, cadenas, hilos, etc.

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.
