Mujeres Activas (Active Women) is a group of good women formed in the city of Itá. It was formed thanks to the efforts of Sra. Reinalda, the current president. She contacted the loan counselor during a weekly meeting of Fundacion Paraguaya that the organization was having in the area. Once she approached the foundation’s counseling office, Sra. Reinalda succeeded in bringing together 17 women whom she had met. They work together comfortably with unity and solidarity and are already in the 5th loan cycle working within the program.

Sra. Reinalda is engaged in the sale of meals of all types. She says that she has many customers since, according to them, she cooks very well. Thanks to her business she is able to help with household expenses and give her family the minimum conditions for a dignified and proper life.

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.
