The “Comité Mujeres Trabajadoras” began because one of the members of the group’s sister is a member of a different committee within the city of Luque and decided to invite her friends and neighbors to create a new group in the neighborhood. It’s currently in the eleventh cycle of the “Comité Mujeres Trabajadoras” of the “Fundación Paraguaya.” It’s made up of 19 ladies who work responsibly in an air of mutual cooperation.

Jorgelina is married to Raúl. Together they have two daughters, one is six years old and in the first grade, and the other is one year old. Jorgelina sells clothing. She used to work as a housekeeper and says that clothing sales has gone well for her and that she has steady customers. She likes being able to help her husband with the household expenses because if they pool their efforts they can better pay their expenses.

She is asking for this loan in order to buy winter clothing, which will be very helpful because she has good customer demand. She appreciates the Foundation for the opportunity that it gives her.

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.
