In the city of Carapeguá, in the Compañía Cerrito, 8 km from the office of Carapeguá, some low-income women found out about the Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras progam. They decided to get together to find out more about the program.

These women are very active and hardworking and most of them make handicrafts, a common actrivity among the people of that area. They are looking for a little support in order to increase their families' income and improve their quality of life through credit. They need this credit program to invest in their respective jobs and thus be able to have sustainable growth that will make them grow as a group and individually.

Like Viviana O., who embroiders fabric and makes woven clothes, all by hand. Her work is very, very delicate and much admired by the customers who acquire and happily pay for her handicrafts.

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.
