The “Cerrito” (Little Hill) women’s committee was formed on 24 March 2008 thanks to Antoliana who sells crafts and contacted the advisor who had a group in the same zone. She learned about the Enterprising Women’s Committee Program and managed to get 17 women together who are working comfortably in their 10th cycle now together and unified within the program. It is an excellent group; thanks to the supportive work they do they continue working with the program to date.

Since she was a little girl, Sra. Antolina has worked making artisinal crafts. Thanks to the training her mother gave her, she succeeded in learning this trade and today her income supports not only her but her entire family. She is asking for the loan to buy the supplies she need for their crafts, that is, everything indispensible for her work such as fabric, needles, and paints.

They are sure that with help from Fundación Paraguaya they will be able to continue with their tasks, add customers and increase income to have a better future.

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.
