This committee came together thanks to one of the members who heard about the “Mujeres Emprendedoras” [Enterprising Women] Program and she gathered a group of friends and neighbors to form a group that they called “Mujeres Trabajadoras” [Working Women] and which has 16 members. They all work together in an honest, mutually supportive way. They define themselves as hardworking women who are responsible with respect to their obligations.

Olga is the President. She’s a cheerful, responsible, hardworking woman living with her children in a humble little house. She’s a seamstress and she comments that she has quite a bit of work and that she strives day to day with just one goal in mind: to provide her children with a better future and a proper, decent life. Her main dream is that her children become great professionals and that through their schooling they become someone in life.

She asks for the loan to buy fabric, thread kits, needles and the other indispensable items needed for her profession.

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.
