The Nueva Esperanza (New Hope) group is working and, with great effort, is getting ahead. They are 21 women who are completing the elimination of poverty survey to be able to understand what situation each of them is in.

One person worthy of highlighting is Señora Lorenza, who works in vegetable sales. Through her efforts and daily struggle she shows that working is the only way one can get ahead and thus help one’s loved ones. She sees a great opportunity in the women’s committee program, and it is because of this that she joined this challenge.

Today she is asking for this loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of fresh vegetables to sell, such as tomatoes, green peppers, onions, and other vegetables, and thus to keep investing in her microenterprise and to help her family as well.

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.

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.
