The formation of this committee was thanks to the initiative of Aida from the city of Carapeguá. The group is called “Medalla Milagrosa” (Miraculous Medal) and is currently in its first cycle with fifteen members. They define themselves as very active ladies who stand out in their work environments.

They joined together to improve their enterprises. Others, however, are starting their first activities in hopes of generating their own income and thus help their families attain better quality of life.

Aida sells all sorts of clothes. She feels completely fulfilled in this work because thanks to the sacrifice she’s done she’s managed to support her family giving them a better standard of living. As far as her clientele is concerned, she has quite a bit of demand so she’d like to expand the variety of goods she has to sell. One of her dreams is to be able to have a locale that she can sell her wares at.

She is asking for the loan to buy seasonal clothing for subsequent resale which will help her meet customer demand. She is grateful to the Fundación for the support it’s provided her.

About Fundación Paraguaya

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.
