Twelve women with very few resources joined the Paraguayan Foundation's Committee of Enterprising Women Program and decided to meet to get information about it. From there came the committee called San Pedro. These women are active and looking for a little more help to increase their household income and improve their quality of life.

Palmira is one of the members. She is grateful for the opportunity from the Paraguayan Foundation, because this loan will be a big help that will allow her to keep growing. Palmira tells us that she makes a living selling all kinds of food, which is going very well, since she cooks very well. Because of this she has already been able to establish a good customer base. One of her goals is to be able to keep growing and helping her family.

She is asking for the loan for the purchase of meat, vegetables, condiments, baking goods, and all the other necessary ingredients for the foods she makes.

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.
