The Women’s Committee by the name of Saldivar Poty was formed on 22 March 2007. This is thanks to the fact that the current Director General, Maria Esther S., who makes and sells cleaning products, contacted the advisor in a weekly meeting that she was conducting in the neighborhood, so that she (Esther) could learn about the type of work the Enterprising Women’s Committee was doing. Once she was informed about the program, she was able to get together 15 women who are now working very well in their 8th loan cycle, in a mutually supportive manner.

During the loan cycles, the group has passed through some difficult times. The Director General’s daughter was very ill and admitted to the hospital. Another of the members was very ill and bedridden for a while. Because the group was very supportive, it accepted responsibility and responded without any trouble; it was able to pull through and continues to work in the program to this day.

The average loan size per member is 735.00 PYG, which will be used for different activities, such as: food sales, sewing notions sales, grocery sales (rice, sugar, noodles, dairy products, breads, herbs, etc.), clothing sales, lingerie sales, cosmetics sales, fruit and vegetable sales, cleaning products sales, crochet sales, etc.

All of the members work to raise funds and they help each other so that they can achieve the goals they all have in common as a group in the Fundación Paraguaya. They actively participate in weekly meetings and they are impeccably supportive of each other.

El Comité de Mujeres de nombre Saldivar Poty, se conformó en fecha 22 de marzo del 2007, gracias a que la actual Directora General la Sra. Ma. Esther S., quien se dedica a la elaboración y venta de artículos de limpieza, contactó con la asesora en una reunión semanal que la misma tenía en la zona, para enterarse de la forma de trabajo que tiene el Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras. Una vez asesorada acerca del Programa logró juntar a 15 mujeres quienes se encuentran trabajando muy a gusto ya en el 8º ciclo, en forma conjunta y solidaria dentro del programa.
El grupo en el transcurso de los ciclos, pasó por algunos inconvenientes, ya que la hija de la Directora General estuvo internada, y otra de las integrantes estuvo en cama muy enferma, respondiendo sin ningún problema al compromiso aceptado, de esta manera el grupo gracias a su trabajo solidario logró salir adelante y seguir trabajando con el programa hasta estos días.
El promedio de crédito retirado por cada integrante es de 735.000 Gs., lo cual va destinado para diferentes actividades tales como venta de comidas, venta de mercerías, venta de mercaderías para la despensa(arroz, azúcar, fideos, lacteos,panificados,yerba,etc),venta de ropas ,venta de lencerías, venta de cosméticos, venta de frutas y verduras, venta de artículos de limpieza, venta de crochet, etc.

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.
