The women of this existing committee are from the Candia Loma Assembly in the city of Caacupé, which is 6km from the Caacupé regional office. With the financial support they receive from Fundación Paraguaya, the members feel secure working in their own businesses because they are able to plan ahead and provide for their families.


Sra. Petrona manages a store where she sells all types of items needed for the home. She is a hardworking woman who gets ahead on behalf of her family in the best way possible. Her husband sells handicrafts, but since he does not earn a steady income, she tries to help in any way she can. Petrona has a few personal expenses related to her children and she also wants to restock her store with merchandise that is low in supply. Therefore, she is requesting a loan to buy baked goods, canned goods, sausages, noodles, rice, and flour.


As of now, all of the members are participating in their eighth loan cycle in the Committee of Women Entrepreneurs Program with Fundación Paraguaya, which establishes daily improvement projects and promotes the development of individuals with limited resources.

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.
