This committee, called Mujeres Luchadoras, is from the city of Caaguazú. It is made up of 18 women who are currently in their sixth loan cycle of Fundación Paraguaya's entrepreneurial women's program. They got together with the goal of seeking a better future for their families.

One of the members is Silvina. She has a small grocery store that she has been running for a while now. It is the main means by which she supports her family and covers her daily household expenses. She says she has good customers who generate a very good income for her. For that reason, she wants to keep investing in her business, which is why she is asking for this loan to buy drinks, food products, and other things to stock her store. This will allow her to meet her customers' demands.

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.
