This Barrio Pacu group was formed after advertisements were placed in the neighborhood. All the women operate viable businesses. Among the businesses: food sales, hairdressers, groceries, tailoring businesses, jewelry and home products sales.
Sra. Maria is one of the members. She makes clothes for men and women: dress clothes, suits, pants, coats, etc. Her pieces are much admired by her customers who come to her over and over to order clothes for special occasions. She works every day on a pedal-operated sewing machine and tells us that the work has damaged her eyesight and led to back problems. She carries on, though, because it's her source of income and the means for caring for her children. She wants to grow and improve the business, she says, so that she can make a better life for herself.
With regard to the group, Sra. Maria says that she is very happy with her fellow members and that the skills that she has picked up in training there have been very useful. She hopes to continue with the group.

About Fundación Paraguaya

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.
