This committee was formed thanks to Mrs. Blanca Rosa O. de Candia, who lives in the city of Villarrica. She extended the invitation and they all were happy to accept. They formed the urban women's committee called Comité Mujeres Activas [Active Women's Committee].

The members of the committee work in artisanal crafts. This is work that they inherited from their parents; it is passed down from generation to generation.

They make beautiful articles such as: shirts, tablecloths and aopo'i. The members also work in selling food products, as well as produce, as well as cutting hair.

Blanca works in this same activity. She is the president of the group and an artisan. She is asking for the loan to buy the fabric for aopo'i and fabric dyes.

The members of this committee are grateful to Kiva and the Fundación Paraguaya for the support they have offered and they say that thanks to it they are going to be able to continue working and giving their families a better quality of life.

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.
