These ladies are from the “Compañía Almada” in the city of Caacupe.

Most of these women are artisans who work out of their homes. They make many types of rubber articles, such as planters, rugs, and many other things. Prior to their involvement with the women’s committee, they had been working at smaller scales. This is why, since they became part of the “Committee for Entrepreneurial Women,” there exists a sense of belonging and a desire to continue to fulfill the foundation’s requirements which allow them to receive capital to satisfy their needs and invest in their small businesses. The businesses brings income into their families. They are grateful for the wonderful opportunity that the foundation gives them and each day they hope to further themselves and acquire experience within the program and meet their obligations as associates.

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.
