In the city of Luque there are 16 women who joined together to help each other through team work. They formed a communal bank called "Mujeres Luchadoras" in which they have placed great hope for growth, not only economic but also personal.

One of these "determined women" is Mrs. Mirna who sells all kinds of beverages. Through her business she has been able to earn enough income to support her family and maintain the business. Mirna sees herself as a hard-working, determined entrepreneur with much of self-sacrifice.

She is requesting a loan from the Fundación Paraguay and Kiva to buy wines, whiskeys, energy drinks and other items to stock her business and offer more variety to customers.

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.
