This group from the “Barrio Arroyo Porá” apartments grew as a result of making contact with one of the foundation’s constituents. All of the women are involved in productive activities, such as: clothing sales, kiosk (snack) sales, cosmetic sales, sales of baked goods, fruit and vegetable sales, sales of school supplies and photocopy services, sweet treat sales, etc. Each lady runs her own business.

Vilma sells clothing in a boutique that she created after becoming part of the Committee for the Women of Kuña Guapa.

She opens her business very early and offers good quality merchandise to all of her neighbors. She attends to her business with the help of her children.

Vilma tells us that the income from her business helps meet the household expenses that they used to rely solely on her husband’s income for. She appreciates the committee very much. It is because of it that she was inspired to start her own business.

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.
