The women commitee Kuña Arandu was launched on 23rd June 2009, thanks to Ms. Petrona J., who went to the offices of Fundación Paraguaya to learn about the program, contacted a loan officer to form a new group and managed to unite 16 women who are very happy working, with a lot of hard work and dedication, already in their 3rd loan cycle, in a joint and co responsible manner in the program.

They all work hard at raising funds, help each other reach the common goals they all share within the group and with Fundación Paraguaya. They take part in weekly meetings and show great solidarity in their work together.

Ms. Gregoria R. is one of the members and she performs one of the traditional jobs of the ITA area, that is, crafts such as Ñandutí embroidery [a type of traditional embroidery in Paraguay, distinctive because it is embroidered following rays that depart from the center of the fabric. Ñandutí is the guaraní word for spider web]. It is one of the most admired crafts by tourists in Paraguay and Ms. Gregoria does it continuously and sells it in several places. She does this work as well as housework, but she has her children's help. Even though she is a very self-sacrificing woman, she is thankful for the work she has which helps her family progress in a dignified manner. She used the loan to buy embroidery threads and fabric.

Additional Information

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.
