The group is composed of 20 hard-working women from the A. neighborhood of the city of Caacupé. The group is currently in the 5th cycle of the Enterprising Women program. A large number of the participants are recycling artisans—they transform car tires into items such as planters, flip flops, mats, and vases, among others.



Others have traditional small grocery stores where people can buy food and household products, such as: meats, canned goods, rice, flour, sugar, and cleaning products, among others. Last, but not least, are the women who are street vendors who sell clothing and accessories for women, and others who sell cheese and manioc starch exclusively.


Their products are exhibited next to the main road that links Caacupé to the city of Tobatí and visitors like them very much. The group has participated in various fairs held in the city of Tobatí and their products were well liked by the tourists, who marveled at the ingenuity and delicate work of the artisans. This brought about good sales for their products.


The 20 women are managing an average line of credit of gs. 750,000 each. The group was created thanks to the services offered by the Fundación Paraguaya through Freddy Bordón, who is the advisor for the women’s groups in the Caacupé office. This is how he was able to bring together all the artisans of the neighborhood and form the group that bears the name “Mujeres Progresistas de A.” (Progressive Women of A.).

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.

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.
