The “Mujeres Trabajando Juntas” (Women Working Together) committee has been in operation for four years working with Fundación Paraguaya. Most of the members have been carrying out productive activities with which they help their families.

Marta is one of this committee’s members. She joined the committee because she needed to have a way of helping and supporting her family. She’s a street vendor of natural remedies and also recyclable materials like aluminum, plastic, paper, metal, etc. She hopes for a better future for her children which is why she strives daily to give them the opportunity to study and attain a better future.

She’s asking for the loan to buy natural remedies to continue selling thus continuing to help her family.

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.
