The Mujeres En Accion (Women In Action) group consists of an excellent group of women from the city of Capiatá, Paraguay. This is thanks to the work of current general director Esmeralda, who contacted people associated with the women's entrepreneur program and was informed about the organization. After this, she organized her friends and neighbors to form the group. She was able to unite 19 women who work with a lot of passion and are already in their fifth loan cycle jointly and with solidarity. They think of themselves as hard-working women willing to fight for what they want. One of the members is Silvia, who makes a living making and selling food such as sandwiches, empanadas, tortillas and other items. She has done this for a very long time, so she has a solid customer base. Her dream is to one day be able to have her own establishment where she can offer her meals. She is requesting the loan to purchase the ingredients she needs to make the food she sells. She thinks that the loan will be a big help so she can continue with her business.

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.
