The group of women called Kuña Aty formed on January 29, 2009 thanks to the Director General, Juliana B. D. S., who is an artisan. She approached Fundación Paraguaya to learn about their Committee of Entrepreneuring Women program and the kind of work it involves. Once informed about the program, she assembled a group of 17 women. Already in their 2nd loan cycle, they have found that they work well together within the program.

The average loan per member is 470,000 guaranís. The money will be used in various activities, including the sale of beverages, coal, grocery items (rice, sugar, noodles, dairy products, baked goods, yerba tea, etc.), clothing, honey, tobacco, etc.

They all work to generate income and they help each other to achieve their common goals and those of Fundación Paraguaya. They actively participate in weekly meetings and work as a team, demonstrating a spirit of friendship and solidarity.

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.
