This group from the “Barrio San Pedro” apartments was formed following an information campaign in the neighborhood. All of the women are involved in productive activities, such as: food sales, pantry, linen goods, pottery, dressmaking, etc. The ladies run their own businesses in order to supplement their incomes and help their families.

Analía puts a lot of effort into her clothing sales business. She sells on foot, visiting customers to offer them her merchandise. Sometimes her children go with her and help her carry her bundles, which are too heavy for her to carry alone.

She plans to supplement her merchandise with school uniforms, now that the school year has begun.

She wants to take advantage of this time in order to sell her merchandise. The other women in the group are also planning similar activities to increase their sales.

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.

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.
