Kuña Aty Group
Because of this the Kuna Aty Committee thanks the Paraguayan Foundation for the trust they put in people with a relatively humble status who are even now discriminated against in the world of opportunities.
Only two women work in different activities. The rest are.”chiperas” breadbakers.. This business requires a lot of strength, more so for women, since the production process generally begins between 3:30 and 4:00 am, by preparing the oven with wood. It is a brick oven (tatacua) in which they later put the shaped bread dough. The bread needs to be baked for several hours at a high temperature while adjusting the heat. Once finished they have the arduous task of selling all of the bread because that is the only way they are compensated for the hard work of being “chiperas” (breadbakers).
Por este hecho el Comité Kuña aty, agradece a la Fundación Paraguaya por la confianza puesta en personas de status relativamente baja que son discriminados en el mundo de las oportunidades hasta la actualidad.
Solo dos señoras se dedican a actividades diferentes a las demás que son chiperas, este negocio requiere de mucho esfuerzo más aún para las mujeres, ya que el proceso de producción inicia generalmente a las 03:30 entre las 04:00 horas de la madrugada, preparando el horno a leña, más conocido como tatacua en la que posteriormente se introduce la masa de la chipa moldeada, esto implica soportar un alto grado de calor manipulando el proceso de cocción del producto mencionado durante varias horas.
Una vez terminada el producto queda la ardua tarea de venderlas en su totalidad para que de esta única forma sea compensada el tan forzoso trabajo de ser chiperas

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.
