In the city of Paraguarí a group of women started gathering with a strong desire to start productive entrepreneurial activities and to increase the capital for their businesses. From there they put themselves in contact with the Fundación Paraguaya in order to enroll themselves in the program of Committees for Women Entrepreneurs.
The committee is named Kuña Katupyry, which is now in its tenth cycle with the Fundación. It is made up of 18 selfless women who fight daily to give the best they can to their families. All of the participants are hard-working women, and they invest their loans in their respective businesses.

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.
