The group called Mujeres Solidarias formed in the month of November, 2006. This committee formed thanks to Idalina J., who came to a talk and was interested in the program. She motivated her neighbors to participate in the program. The group is centered in the center of the city of Itá.

The group has now worked with the Fundación Paraguaya (this microcredit organization) for two years. All of them have been adhered to the program and this has brought them the opportunity to get loans much more easily and it is also important to point out that they value the loan and they demonstrate excellent repayment behavior. They are very talented and and united, participating in meetings twice monthly. Also they do extra activities in order to gather the funds to solve any eventuality that might happen to the committee.

The group is made up of a total of 15 industrious women who do various activities. They want a new loan that they will invest according to the activity of each member.

Florencia Báez will use her loan to buy fabric and thread to make and embroider items to wear. Aida R. will buy wallets, necklaces, and other articles to sell. Lucia R., Valentina E., Mercedes A., Teresa R., Julia G., Idalina J., Maris H. and María Teresa N. have stores where they will invest their loans in the purchase of rice, sugar, yerba mate (an herbal tea), flour, vermicelli, cleaning supplies, etc.

Nilda C. wants to buy sweets as she is in charge of a school canteen. Gloria G. sells clothes and she wants to acquire winter clothing stock. Emiliana A. will buy coal to sell.

The last two are Liz O. who will invest her loan to buy fruits and vegetables for her business, and Francisca B. who also sells clothing and therefore the loan would be destined to buy winter clothing.

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.
