A group of women in the city of Luque decided to form a committee of female entrepreneurs with the goal of improving their lives. They hope to work hard for a better future so they named their group “Allied to Work.” Their name describes the hope of these women to improve the quality of their lives.

The members of the group are more than just partners, they are also very good friends. During this period, each member of the group has learned a lot and the group has overcome many difficulties. Currently the group consists of 16 members.

The women of the group are involved in diverse commercial activities such as: sale of fast food, clothing, medicinal herbs, cosmetics, lingerie, fruit, cell phone accessories, and candy. The loan will provide for the purchase of various products related to the aforementioned activities.

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.
