In Paraguarí, women meet with the goal of capitalizing their businesses and undertaking productive business ventures. The result has been very fruitful and interesting due to the benefits brought on by the program. The group goes by the name Kuña Katupyry and is currently in its 5th cycle. In the previous cycle, the group ran into problems because two of its members did not fulfill their loan payments. However, with much effort they all managed to recover. The group is made up of 15 enterprising women who do their best to increase their incomes and to provide the best for their respective families. All the women are hard workers and have invested their loans in their individual businesses.

Gladys is the president of the group. Every day she leaves her house at dawn in order to sell fruit to housewives before they decide to go to the store. She goes house to house and wants to own her own stand because everyone knows her for the high quality of her products. She needs the loan to buy more fruit to sell so she can increase her income and achieve her goals.

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.
