This committee was formed by Maria Paula P. de Talavera who lives in the town of Itape. The women were delighted to form a part of the 'Comité de Mujeres Rurales' (Committee of Rural Women) and named their committee 'Primavera' (Spring).

Most of the committee members make handicrafts. Others sell food, one works as a nurse and another as a dressmaker. Each one carries out their own business activity and together they would like to increase their profits and, thereby, improve their quality of life.

One of the group's members is Mrs Maria P. who is in the handicraft business. She makes clothes, tablecloths, sheets and decorative accessories.

The handicrafts which these ladies produce are very much admired by their customers since they are very well finished and of high quality. They manage to sell their products to important businesses in the country.

Maria P. is requesting this loan to buy supplies, especially fabrics which are used in creating ao po'i (a traditional Paraguayan material which is itself hand made from cotton threads).

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.
