The “Mujeres Trabajadoras” (Working Women) committee has 19 members who struggle daily to provide daily bread for their homes. All of the women are heads of household who are very self-sacrificing and tenacious.

Such is the case of Deolinda who is married and buys and sells noodles, milk, beverages, clothes, costume jewelry. Once she acquires these goods she resells them. With profits she’s able to support her family and maintain quite a profitable business in her neighborhood. One of Deolinda’s many dreams is to have a store and to become a more successful micro businesswoman than what she’s managed to become in the short time since she joined the Fundación.

She is a very enterprising woman who does a variety of things and does well in them. Because of this, she’s asking for a loan to buy noodles, milk, beverages and other basic staple items that will be of great help to her.

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.
