The women of the present committee are from the Tujukua Company. They are very content with the program from the Committee of Entrepreneurial Women, as it provides them with access to capital to help increase their incomes and slowly grow their businesses. The women are today in their 7th loan cycle, have 19 members, and have been in existence for 1 year.

This group is very grateful to Fundación Paraguaya for the support it has provided for them to grow economically. One of the members, Maria, dedicates herself to handicraft works such embroidery for bedspreads, tablecloths, and other items. She buys the materials and creates these with her very own hands, selling her items to the various businesses in the city. Her work is admired and sells quickly.

Several of the members dedicate themselves to this type of activity and, via this means, help their families with the household expenses and, in particular, with providing food for each day. Maria is requesting a loan to buy the raw materials she needs to create her handcrafted works.

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.
