The group's president is Maria, who lives with her husband and children. Her business is making handicrafts from 'ñanduti' (fine Paraguayan lace). In particular, she makes hats from 'ñanduti'. She also makes traditional dance skirts, tapestries and notions to stick onto clothing made from arasape and ao po'i (Paraguayan cotton fabric). She carries out constant activities together with her fellow committee members and, in this way, they foster good team spirit and help each other out.

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.
