Mujeres Valientes is a group made up of 15 women from the city of Caacupé. They are women who are the heads of their families, and who are struggling tirelessly to be able to help their families. They wish to give them everything that they were not able to have and so that they don’t lack necessities.

One of them, and an example to follow, is Diana, who makes a living selling chipas, which is a traditional food from Paraguay. She is a woman who is exerting herself to improve and to give her family everything that they need and want so that they have everything and are not lacking for anything.

Diana is requesting this loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of chipas, and in this way be able to continue with her sales and have the income that she needs.

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.
