Mujeres Emprendedoras (Enterprising Women) is a group working their first cycle of the women Committee’s program. They come from Concepción, a town that is still expanding and which is located a bit far from the central area of the country. This area is difficult to reach, and the members of this group want to fight to keep on progressing and to help improving the area where they live providing a better environment and making it grow little by little.
Maria is a member of this group. She lives in an area located very far away from the town center, which is where her small food shop is located. She also goes selling her products to other areas. She wants her area to improve in due time and with the help of every member of her community, in order to grant better security to their families as well as to succeed in granting them a better future.
She is requesting a loan to buy ingredients for her meals, such as meat, vegetables, dressings and more, in order to keep on helping her family as well as delighting her customer with the tasty food she prepares. She also wants to progress with her activity, thus providing her family with what they need to suffer no hardship in life.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is designed for poor clients living in rural areas with high levels of crime and social conflict. These clients, working primarily in agriculture, are often ineligible for credit from formal financial institutions because of the high-crime area they live in, their lack of adequate collateral (like a land title), and the likelihood of low agricultural production due to bad weather or pests. Fundación Paraguaya is committed to serving these clients with loans and other wraparound services tailored to their needs. It also provides clients working in agriculture with access to discounted training courses at a local agricultural school to teach them how to improve their crop yields.

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.
