The “Virgen de Fátima” women's committee is in its first loan cycle. It is composed of 12 women, who are all friends and neighbors in the city of Ybycui. These women have great unity, responsibility and solidarity, and they report that they have a strong desire to work and get ahead, both with the group and in their families.

Maria Fatima is one of the members. Her business is a laundry, and she comments that she has a lot of customers who always bring her their clothing to wash. It is a job involving much sacrifice, but she is very proud of what she does, since it is dignified and honest work.

She is requesting the loan to buy powdered detergents, fabric softener and other supplies, with which she will be able to keep working and fulfill her orders.

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.
