The present committee is named Kuña Activa in the Cabañas group from the city of Caacupé. Its membership includes 15 women, all of them adults and residents of the same neighborhood.

Right now the committee works in 10-month cycles, receiving an average of 540,000 for each member. These recipients use their loans for the economic activities detailed below, of which you will see the majority are street vendors that sell various products.

It should be mentioned that as well as the financial assistance that these women receive, they also benefit from non-financial services such as training each cycle, in which they learn to maintain the integrity of the committee, to save and to carry out their personal and family budgets. This encapsulates all the benefits that they receive from the program Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras (Enterprising Women’s Committee) that promotes the foundation Paraguaya de Cooperación y Desarollo (Cooperation and Development of Paraguay).

The members of the Committee thank the foundation Paraguaya for bringing them these types of opportunities that promote the creation of small businesses and generate economic resources for sectors that are not favored for this type of benefits.

En la actualidad el comité opera en su 10mo. ciclo recibiendo un promedio de guaranies 540.000 por cada integrante. Las mismas beneficiadas destinan sus prestamos en actividades comerciales detalladas mas abajo, que como se observa en la gran mayoria consiste en vender productos variados en forma ambulante que requiere de mayor esfuerzo para demandar los productos.

Es bueno mensionar que, a la par que éstas mujeres reciben una asistencia financiera, asi tambien se benefician de servicios no financieros que comprenden la capacitación por cada ciclo, en las que las mismas aprenden como mantener la integridad del comité en donde pertenecen, aprenden a ahorrar, y a realizar presupuestos personales y familiares. Todo esto engloba los beneficios que reciben del programa Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras que promueve la fundación Paraguaya de Cooperación y Desarrollo.

La integración toda del detallado Comité , agradece a la fundaciòn Parguaya por brindarles este tipo de oportunidades que promueve la creación de pequeños negocios y por ende generar recursos económicos a sectores desfavorecidos por este tipo de beneficios.

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.
