“Mujeres Activas” is the name of this new group, which is in its first loan cycle as part of the programme run by the women's committee. The main goal decided by the committee was growth for every woman, not only economic growth but also personal growth.

One of the women is Ana, who sells meals as a street trader. She does this work to fight for her family and to be able to buy them what they need so they don't have to do without. Ana's dream for the future is to increase her production and to fight for a better future for her children, and this is why she is redoubling her efforts in pursuit of her dream.

She is asking for this loan because she wants to buy ingredients for her meals such as vegetables, condiments, garden produce and baked goods. She is grateful for this opportunity that is offered to her.

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.
