They are doing the survey related to elimination of poverty (some of the women find themselves living in poverty, and others are on the edge of poverty, that is to say their incomes are very low or medium).

Matilde is a nurse in the "Colonia 1° de marzo" or "March 1st neighborhood", and she is the President of the communal bank and is a very hard worker. She formed the group in order to be able to work together and get ahead. She is using this loan in order to dedicate herself to raising animals since she wants to buy yard animals and in that way help her family through her work.

They are thankful for this opportunity that they are receiving, which will permit them to keep growing.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of the innovative “Poverty Stoplight” program developed by Fundación Paraguaya for women living in poverty. A “stoplight” measurement tool is used to help borrowers self-identify the type of poverty that affects them most (lack of income, dearth of financial opportunities, poor living conditions etc.). Borrowers rate 50 areas of their life as green (not poor), yellow (poor) or red (extremely poor). Together with their loan officer, they come up with a plan to resolve yellow and red indicators. Through this program, Fundación Paraguaya hopes to lift 9,000 women and their families out of poverty by 2017.

To learn more about this unique approach to eliminating poverty, you can read this article on Fundación Paraguaya’s website.

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.
