This group is currently in their third loan cycle, and they have achieved good results from their previous loans.

As of now, many women have managed to open their own businesses. Others made improvements with the help of advisors. As a result all of them have kept up their incomes. In general they feel very pleased to belong to the group, as in one way or another the group's knowledge helps each of them in their various jobs.

One example from the group is 30-year old Sra. Antonia G. Britez who has three children. They stay at home while she goes out to sell her products. She sells chipa (a kind of bread made from starch obtained from yucca or cassava, maize flour, cheese, lard, and milk). As she doesn't have a stall, she goes to traffic lights and sells to bus passengers. So she covers a lot of ground each day in order to have good sales. She returns home to prepare lunch and goes out again in the afternoons to make more sales.

Antonia is a long-suffering woman whose daily life is hard. When she gets home from work, she has to do the household chores and everything else that will help her family get ahead as she is a single mother.

The loan will be used to cover various expenses and to buy chipa to sell as this is how she supports her family.

El presente comité se encuentra trabajando en su tercer ciclo y todas lograron buenos resultados en los dos ciclos anteriores.
Hasta el momento muchas lograron abrir su negocio, otras pudieron mejorar con la ayuda de las asesoras, y de esa manera mantener el ingreso que cada una tiene, en general, se sienten muy conformes de pertener a su comité ya que de una u otra forma facilita el conocimiento para el mejor desarrollo de sus actividades.
Así se puede hablar de la Sra. Antonia G. Britez, de 30 años de edad , tiene 3 hijos, los mismos se quedan en la casa mientras ella sale a vender sus productos.
Ella se dedica a la venta de chipa (preparado de alimidon de yuca o mandioca, Harina de maiz, queso, grasa de cerdo, leche), como no posee un puesto de venta sale en los semaforos en los buses para vender, así todos los días recorre bastante para lograr una buena venta para regresar a su casa preparar el almuerzo y vuelve a salir por la tarde ofrecer sus productos.
Es una señora muy sufrida que tiene un día a día muy pesado por que al llegar de su trabajo debe de realizar las tareas de la casa y todo lo hace para salir adelante con sus hijos ya que es madre soltera.
Solicita el préstamo para cubrir algunos gastos y a la ves comprar las chipas para vender ya es la actividad que realiza para mantener a su familia.

About Fundación Paraguaya

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.
