When Mrs. Blanca G. found out about Fundación Paraguaya's women's committee program, she didn't skip a beat. She contacted all of her female friends in the area to tell them about it and organized an informational meeting about the program.

This group is made up of 15 women who are involved in a variety of economic endeavors. Each woman will invest the money in her individual business. For example, Mrs. Hilaria D., Mrs. Erenia B., and Mrs. Maria A. all own general stores and will invest their money in merchandise like oil, rice, pasta, flour and yerba mate.

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.
